When Things Go Pear-Shaped – and it’s your fault
If your work involves selling your knowledge, services and expertise to others, then Errors & Omissions insurance (E&O) is a must. It’s an essential piece of armour for anyone who could be sued for making a mistake.
What is E&O insurance?
In this everything-by-yesterday world, even the most respectable company can find itself in dispute with a client over an error, a delay or alleged breach of contract. E&O insurance provides indemnity for losses you are legally liable for if you make a mistake or are negligent, or if your product or service is defective, inadequate or fails to perform.
