Errors & Omissions Insurance: Do You Need It?

Errors and omissions (E&O) insurance is a vital component of the complete insurance package for many of today’s thriving businesses — but, how do you know if your company needs it? Whether or not you should be carrying E&O insurance largely depends on the nature of the services that you provide. Most of us are familiar with the malpractice insurance carried by health professionals, and E&O insurance is not that different. E&O insurance is carried by businesses who have the potential to make errors (or omissions) that could open up the business to substantial liability. E&O coverage typically covers judgments, settlements, and defense costs associated with legal action arising from an E&O claim.

Who Typically Carries E&O Insurance?

Doctors, lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, and other professionals carry E&O insurance as part of their standard insurance package. These professions require that practitioners protect themselves from mistakes that can happen from time to­ time, even to the best of us. Even if you are not working in one of the aforementioned fields, E&O insurance is beneficial for those in professions such as designers, event planners, caterers — basically any profession where an oversight or error could result in costly litigation.
