Our experienced professional liability defense attorneys, defend a wide range of professionals and their insurers.
Professional liability insurance is a form of liability insurance that helps protect professional advice - and service-providing individuals and companies from bearing the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client, and any damages awarded in a civil lawsuit.
Professional liability coverage focuses on alleged failure to perform on the part of, financial loss caused by, and error or omission in the service or product sold by the policyholder. These are specialized causes for legal action that would not be covered by a more general liability insurance policy.
