What coverage can professional liability insurance provide for Engineering professionals?

 

In most cases, if you are providing a service such as plans for a new building or advice on how to solve a structural, you need professional insurance to cover mistakes, problems with the finished product or disagreements in payment, among other actions. in many instances, you need professional liability insurance as part of your contract or agreements for work.

Most trade associations, such as the National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies and the American Institute of Architects, strongly encourages its members and members' firms to take a proactive approach to protecting their business through specialized professional liability insurance. 

Other important policies for Engineering Professionals:

While Professional Liability Insurance guards against work errors and negligence, it does not provide complete protection. Accidental injury and property damage are daily risks for any  business. Other policies to consider include:

General liability insurance: This policy can pay legal expenses related to client property damage and injuries, along with advertising injuries such as slander. 

Business owner’s policy: This policy bundles general liability insurance with commercial property insurance, often at a lower rate than if the policies were purchased separately.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance: Required in almost every state for businesses that have employees, workers’ comp can cover medical expenses for work injuries.

Cyber liability insurance: This policy helps business professionals survive data breaches and cyberattacks by paying for recovery expenses and other associated costs.
