What is Professional Liability or E&O Insurance?
Professional Liability Insurance, Errors & Omissions Insurance or E&O Insurance are common and interchangeable terms of insurance that cover a variety of professional occupations outside of the medical community. Medical related professional policies are often referred to as malpractice insurance.
Professional or E&O insurance protects those in professional businesses from losses arising from their acts, errors, omissions, breach of duty, or failure to act that results in financial harm to a third party. Claims alleging bodily injury and property damage are typically excluded because they are better suited to be insured under the general liability policy.
