Errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, also known as professional liability insurance, protects insurance agents against claims of negligence and failure to render services. It’s a vital part of an agent’s business insurance policy as general liability does not protect against these types of claims.

For example, while setting up a new customer’s policy, an agent forgets to add collision coverage to the customer’s vehicle. After an auto accident, the customer discovers the error and sues the agent. E&O insurance could help cover the cost to defend your business.
