What is Errors & Omissions insurance?

Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance can protect professional service providers from potentially devastating financial damages resulting from alleged negligence or error in the delivery of your services. E&O insurance may also be found under the name Professional Liability.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy in 2022, there were 1.2 million small businesses in Illinois. While they accounted for 99.6 percent of the state’s businesses, these figures are increasing steadily.

No matter which field you’re in, the nature of the products you offer, or the nature of the services you provide, mistakes can happen. Even if you have an excellent track record, one mistake can result in a lawsuit against your company.

What does E&O insurance cover?

Illinois’s Error and Omissions insurance covers your costs up to the maximum amount stipulated in your contract. It will allow you to save:

  • Legal costs – Most lawyers are charged an hourly rate. Even if the issue can be resolved in a short time but it’s expensive to engage a competent legal counsel. Therefore, the longer it will take to be resolved, the more money you will have to pay for it.
  • Court Charges – Filing documents in court as well as underwriting and administrative costs.
  • Settlements – to help save each party from the expense of long-drawn-out legal proceedings, most cases are settled outside of court. Based on the advice of your lawyer’s recommendations are it is possible to pay your client a set amount.
  • Judgments – In the eventuality your case is put to trial, and the judge is in favor of the plaintiff, you’ll be required to pay the adjudged amount, or risk the possibility of having a lien put upon your assets as a business.
