Building Designer Insurance
Professional Liability insurance protects building designers in the event a client alleges that you were professionally negligent or failed to perform the duties as promised in your contract.
Building Designer Professional Liability Coverage Includes
Professional Liability insurance includes legal defense costs—no matter how baseless the allegations. It will pay for any resulting judgments against you, including court costs, up to the coverage limits on your policy.
Some of your clients may require that you and your subcontractors carry Errors & Omissions insurance. The right kind of E&O policy can protect both the service firm and subcontractors from claims of a perceived error or omission, even if the problem occurs months after the initial job.
Additional Coverages For Professional Liability
Your Professional Liability Insurance policy can include:
- A business owners package that includes general liability insurance and property insurance
- Options including coverage of personal injury claims
- Defense costs outside the limits of liability
- Deductibles beginning at $0
Errors & Omissions Is Different Than General Liability
Errors and Omissions insurance coverage is not provided by a Commercial General Liability policy. Commercial General Liability does not provide coverage for errors, contract performance disputes or any other Professional Liability issues. Property management consultants and companies who have General Liability without Errors & Omissions coverage are taking a serious risk.
