Miscellaneous Professional Liability Insurance: Did you know?

A PRIME and Liberty Mutual Insurance Special

Miscellaneous Professional Liability coverage is also known as Errors and Omissions. It exclusively protects from financial damages and is part of a commercial general liability policy. Mistakes occur all the time and our culture promotes lawsuits that can result in major court related expenditures. No longer limited to physicians, attorneys, and other professionals, this insurance also shields many small businesses that offer professional-standard services. In fact, there is a rise in job contracts that actually require professional liability coverage to be in place.

Eligible classes include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Antique shops
  • Art galleries
  • Auctioneers
  • Caterers
  • Various kinds of consultants
  • Dental labs
  • Party, event and wedding planners
  • Hotels
  • Inspection/appraisal companies
  • Interior designers
  • Office machine or appliance installation, inspection, adjustment or repair businesses
