What is professional liability insurance?
Professional liability insurance is a type of business insurance that provides coverage for professionals and businesses to protect against claims of negligence from clients or customers. Professional liability insurance typically covers negligence, copyright infringement, personal injury, and more. Claims covered by a professional liability policy can include damages caused by things you did and/or things that you should have done. Professional liability is also sometimes called professional indemnity insurance or errors & omissions coverage.

You accidentally forget to get to tell your client about needed sign offs causing project delays that increase the cost.

Many people often pair it with general liability insurance for more complete coverage.
