Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance

Errors and omissions insurance covers the costs of claims made against you or your staff, often due to inadequate work or negligence. 

A strong defence is vital even when allegations are unfounded – your future prosperity depends on it. You will need to assemble an experienced legal team at considerable expense - and even then, you may be liable for damages or need to settle out of court.

How does E&O insurance protect companies?

  1. Covers legal defence costs
  2. Pays any damages or settlements

Who needs E&O insurance? 

Any business providing a service needs Errors and Omissions cover. Just a few examples:

  • Contractors
  • Maintenance companies
  • Mechanics
  • Electricians 
  • Plumbers 
  • Graphic designers
  • Beauty parlours
  • Wedding planners 
  • Printers 
  • Real estate agents
  • and many more. 

If you are providing advice for a living, or working in a regulated sector, we recommend professional indemnity insurance. If you are making or designing products, consider product liability as well. 

E&O is not as comprehensive as professional indemnity cover or directors and officers cover, but for many businesses and tradespeople, it offers cost-effective protection.
