How much does professional liability insurance cost?

While you may be able to find actual dollar amounts, or ranges, of the average cost of professional liability insurance for your small business type online, your premium will ultimately depend on the characteristics of your specific business.

No two businesses are identical, and their differences are factored into the cost of their professional liability insurance (sometimes referred to as E&O or professional indemnity). Learning which attributes of your business impact your insurance costs can aid in making sound insurance decisions that could save you money.
