Consultants Offer a Valuable Professional Service to Their Clients
Consultants have the difficult task of improving their clients’ businesses. Clients expect a lot from their consultant partners, and trust them with bringing success to their business. Marketing consultants are expected to build and guide a company’s public perception and reputation.
If severing ties with their consultant partners isn’t enough, a company could take it further and pursue legal action. It’s in those circumstances that having the right kind of insurance is critical to the business of a consultant. The right insurance policy will protect a consultant from legal fees, court costs, and any settlement or judgement fees related to the charges.
General Liability Insurance
A Commercial General Liability policy will respond when a business or its owner is sued because someone was injured or somebody’s property was damaged. It doesn’t matter if the claim is true, the policy will cover legal expenses and any award granted.
Professional Liability Insurance
Professional Liability insurance — also known as Errors & Omissions insurance (E&O) — is usually triggered when a business or business owner is accused of failing to properly render professional services, or that they were acting negligently.
Contents insurance is designed to protect the business’ equipment. That can include computers, stock, equipment and anything else the business and employees use to do their job. It kicks in when any of that equipment is damaged in a flood, fire, or other insured peril, or if it’s stolen.
Commonly Asked Questions
What types of risks does my small business face as a business consultant?
As a consultant you’re providing advice and counsel, and sometimes there’s an error or omission in the work you perform leading to a lawsuit. Having consultants insurance protects you from dealing with these liability insurance costs, as well as the cost of a lawsuit, even if you’re not at fault. If you have an office or leased premises you’re also exposed to the risk of slips and falls on site. If there’s a fire, flood, burst pipe or other peril it can damage your office equipment, furnishings, and cause business to have a financial loss while including additional expenses to relocate while the damage is being fixed.
