Texas Professional Liability Insurance

 

You went into business to provide a good life for your family, do something you love, and build a career you can be proud of. Service is the name of the game in your industry. You provide advice, share your expertise, and support your customers and clients by doing a job they can’t do for themselves.

 

No matter how long you’re in business, there’s one thing you can’t escape – mistakes. As a service provider, especially if you work with other businesses, mistakes can be expensive – and not just for your client. Make a big enough error and you might be sued for negligence, libel, slander, or copyright infringement.

 

Here at Patterson Insurance, we can’t keep you from being sued by an angry client, but we can make sure it doesn’t bankrupt you. As a service professional, you need professional liability insurance also called “errors and omissions” or “E&O” insurance.

 

Who’s covered by a Texas professional liability insurance policy? The quick answer is anyone who gives advice or provides a professional service:

  • Attorneys
  • Accountants
  • Real estate professionals
  • Writers
  • Graphic designers
  • Marketing companies
  • Freelancers
  • Consultants

What’s covered when you buy a Texas professional liability insurance policy?

 

Negligence

Whether actual or alleged, if you’re accused of giving bad advice, failing to deliver your service, or making a serious omission, you’re covered.

 

Defense

Your legal costs will be taken care of as long as you’ve got a covered claim.

 

Libel or Slander

Saying something wrong or insulting about someone is a form of personal injury and comes under this coverage.

 

Copyright Infringement

Use or take some type of content (written, image, video, audio, etc.) that doesn’t belong to you, whether intentional or not, and you could get sued.

 

The team here at Patterson Insurance knows that you’re trying to do an honest day’s work but mistakes happen and sometimes communication breaks down. We can’t make your client accept your apology, but we can help your business keep running during these times with the right Texas professional liability insurance policy for your business. Make sure professional liability insurance is a part of your business protection plan.
