Owning a business is a great accomplishment. There are many situations that can be a great source of pride for a business owner: first employee, hitting a major sales goal, getting awards from the community, the list could go on. However, a situation could arise where you could be sued for negligence, personal injury or copyright infringement to name a few. These situations have the potential to be a huge financial drain on your business funds. Having Professional Liability Insurance from Southern Colorado Insurance Services can help protect your business assets and give you some piece of mind.

Professional Liability Insurance includes, but is not limited to:

  • Negligence (alleged or actual)
  • Cost of Legal Defense
  • Personal Injury (libel, slander, etc.)
  • Copyright Infringement
  • Claims and damages
  • Non-permanent staff
  • And More!

Should yourself or someone associated with your professional services commit libel or slander, fail to deliver your service/product or if the question of copyright infringement pops up, your professional liability insurance may help offset the costs of defending your reputation. Professional liability insurance does have some limitations.  The following situations are not covered under a professional liability policy:

  • Bodily Injury
  • Property Damage
  • Fraud
  • False Advertising
  • Patents and Trade Secrets
  • Employment Issues
  • Customer Identifiable Information

Liability for Professionals

From Accountants to Insurance for IT Professionals we can provide coverage for Errors & Omissions, Data Breach, Technology and many other solutions.  Professional firms require customized coverage designed to protect their business operations for claims of negligence or wrongful acts. Our office can compare coverage and pricing through multiple companies to determine the best protection for your specific needs.

Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance

An insurance form that protects the insured against liability for committing an error or omission in performance of professional duties. Generally, such policies are designed to cover financial losses rather than liability for bodily injury and property damage

Director and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance

Insures corporate directors and officers against claims, most often by stockholders and employees, alleging financial loss arising from mismanagement. The policies contain two coverages: the first reimburses the insured organization when it is legally obligated (typically by corporate charter or state statute) to indemnify corporate directors and officers for their acts; the second provides direct coverage to directors and officers when the organization is not legally obligated to indemnify them. In addition, a third type of coverage, known as entity securities liability insurance is usually available on an optional basis, for additional premium. Such coverage insures the corporate organization in connection with securities it has issued. D&O forms are written on a claims-made basis, generally contain no explicit duty to defend the insureds, and typically exclude intentional/dishonest acts and bodily injury and property damage.

Software and Information Technology

Coverage should be tailored to meet the professional liability needs of the specific firm.  The coverage should offer protection against the exposures to loss including E&O, Security, Intellectual property, data breach, cyber liability and electronic data liability.
