What is professional liability insurance?

Professional liability insurance covers professionals in case they are found negligent in the course of offering professional services. For instance, if a business management consultant advises a company on how they can save their business, and then the advice fails, and the company collapses, then the consultant might face a lawsuit. Another example is a photographer who accidentally damages photos of a client’s wedding. Such situations can be less costly to the professional if they have professional liability insurance Ontario.

Who requires professional liability insurance?

Real estate experts
There are various flexible covers for real estate firms that offer consultancy and management services. The insurance will protect them from a broad range of losses that can occur during their operation. Whether small, medium or large, all real estate firms are sure to benefit from this cover.

Technology experts
With everything going online nowadays, technology is vital to the operation of most businesses. If technology fails, then most companies will have difficulty operating. The financial impact of such a failure can be massive; the troubled companies might feel the need to sue the technology providers. Unfortunately, most of the professional liability insurance covers are not designed for technological experts. As such, one ought to find a firm that offers the coverage. The cover is suitable for the majority of technology companies such as those in the fields of:

  • Electronics and hardware production
  • Information technology
  • Software design technology
Home inspectors
Homes are significant investments. When buying or selling a home, you will require the services of a home inspector to ensure that every system in the house is working as it should. If the expert is not right at his or her work, then they might miss out an aspect that might cause havoc later. When the client comes back to file a claim, as a home inspector, you ought to have protected yourself as such claims have the potential of destroying both your wallet and your reputation.

Lawyers
When you hire a legal representative to represent you during a legal proceeding, you typically trust that he will manage everything and protect your interest. The lawyer, being human, might make an error that might make the client lose the case. Let’s say it was a divorce proceeding where one party was to get alimony but the attorney messes up, and the party does not get what was entitled to him or her. What follows next is likely to weigh heavily on the lawyer especially if the client demands compensation. As a lawyer, you should stay on the safe side by signing up for professional liability insurance.
