Professional liability for engineers
One of the most commonly requested coverages by engineers, professional liability insurance (also referred to as errors & omissions insurance) protects against claims of negligence, including if a client feels their expectations weren’t met.
For example, a client claims the work completed by an engineering contractor was not satisfactory and files a lawsuit. Engineering E&O insurance would help cover the cost to defend your engineering services business.

For example, while visiting a job site, an employee accidently damages an expensive piece of equipment owned by a different company. General liability could help cover the damage.
- Business Owners Policy (BOP): A business owners policy bundles general liability insurance with commercial property insurance into one easy to manage policy.
- Workers’ Compensation: Workers comp covers your employees should they become injured or ill on the job.
