What is professional liability insurance?
Professional Liability or Professional indemnity (also called Errors or Omissions, and E&O) protects your business from claims of financial losses resulting from omissions or errors, performance failures or failure of work. Premiums are based on the type of work undertaken by you, loss history, experience and billings including any specialty/niche areas where you consult and work. Architects and engineer’s professional liability insurance’s annual premiums start from $750.
Why do architects and engineers need professional liability insurance?
Architects & engineer’s errors and omissions insurance also referred as professional liability insurance (PLI) protect engineers or building design firms against their professional negligence, errors or omissions claims. Any engineer or engineering firm professionals (even the best), regardless of the service they offer, can never escape the possibility that their service may fail to meet their client's expectations. In today's litigious environment even one dissatisfied client can place a professional's career and personal assets at risk. Having professional liability (Errors & Omissions) insurance also entrusts the client that you have the business experience and professionalism needed to secure the coverage.
Why not just General Liability is enough for architects and engineers?
General Liability covers your business against claims of bodily injury or property damage to others (for example your client). Commercial general liability does not provide coverage for professional errors, professional liability matters or any other contract performance disputes. Architects, engineers and building designers and other firms who have general liability only without professional liability (Errors & Omissions Liability) coverage are taking a serious risk.
