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.

What our Clients are Saying

    Shortly after moving my business to OTC my car was involved in an accident and there was a dispute about liability. Fortunately, Jack was on my side. He was very considerate and professional. What was determined a closed case by the other parties was reopened because of due diligence.
