Did you Know?
If you’re a consultant working as a sole proprietor you are personally responsible, both legally and financially, for all aspects of the business. The right insurances help to protect you if things go wrong!
Consultants’ insurance covers a broad range of professions.
We help insure many Consultants, Coaching & Training professionals and businesses including (but not limited to):
Professional Liability Insurance (aka E&O insurance) – Consultants, Coaching & Training
A Professional Liability insurance policy is critical for those who are in the business of providing advice and instruction to others. A Professional Liability policy helps protect you as a consultant, coach or training professional against damages related to your services, actions or recommendations.
The policy can cover employees and independent contractors from allegations of negligence, failure to perform, inaccuracy, bad advice and other common risks associated with the services they provide.
For example, if a business consultant or career coach is accused of giving bad advice that results in economic damage to a customer, the policy is intended to cover defense costs and resulting damages that he/she may incur.
General Liability – Consultants, Coaching & Training
Professionals working as consultants, coaches or training professionals are often required to have a solid General Liability policy in place before they can start an engagement with a customer. It is the most basic form of business insurance that any business or individual should consider.
General Liability intends to protect against allegations of bodily injury or property damage and it can cover related medical costs if someone (who is not an employee) gets hurt. It also covers allegations of advertising injury and personal injury such as libel, slander, defamation, etc.
Professionals who work closely with other people may sooner or later face minor (or major) accidents that are unplanned and potentially costly. That is why General Liability is an important building block to protecting your business assets.
Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) – Consultants, Coaching & Training
A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is a convenient and affordable way for consultants, coaches and trainers to combine General Liability (above) with coverage for their business property (computers, equipment, etc.), non-owned business auto liability, business interruption protection, and more.
A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is an easy and efficient way for you to protect your business assets against many of the most common liabilities and unplanned events experienced by professionals in your industry.
