Business Consultant Insurance coverage protects consultants and their businesses against allegations of negligence, claims and damages, of financial loss through the errors & omissions/professional liability insurance and from an allegation of negligence resulting in bodily injury and/or property damage through the commercial general liability coverage. Both coverages are often required to be evidenced by clients via a certificate of insurance and that the commercial general liability policy names the consultant’s client as an additional insured.
The errors & omissions/professional liability portion of Business Consultant Insurance Coverage policies are usually issued on a “claims-made” basis. This means that coverage is triggered when a claim is filed and you report it to the insurance company since it is often hard to identify when the alleged error or omission originally occurred. An Insured’s work will be covered dating back to the earliest date of the continuous professional liability insurance coverage. Policies typically have a one-year term, with an annual premium and deductibles on a per-claim basis. In contrast, commercial general liability coverage is almost always written on a per-occurrence basis.
