Technology is all about zeros and ones: it either works or it doesn't. At least that's what your clients think.
It's not that simple, of course, and problems can't always be turned off and on again. Trying to explain why can sound like an excuse and it doesn't take long for the accusations to start.
Thankfully, IT insurance protects you. One policy, zero worries.
It'd be great if we could say that and mean it. But we can't.
Mistakes happen, accusations are made, lawyers get involved and clients want payback. Rightly or wrongly these things happen every day and, sooner or later, you could be on the receiving end.
A claim won't go away if you ignore it. And there are no shortcuts. You have to do something about it.
So, you need errors & omissions insurance because you have a business to run; because you have limited funds; because you're not legally trained; and because your reputation matters.
What else is there?
Negligence claims and allegations made against you by clients and third parties, because of mistakes you've made and things you've failed to do.
Programming errors, improper selection, installation, or configuration of networks/systems, failure to maintain, and failure to meet the requirements of a contract (i.e. timelines and/or content) are common scenarios that lead to lawsuits for technology professionals.
Specifically (but depending on the policy wording) you'll be covered for:
- Claims relating to any past work
- Libel, slander, defamation (via personal injury coverage)
- Copyright and trademark infringement (via intellectual property coverage)
- Blanket additional insured endorsement availability
- No restriction on coverage for regulatory actions
But that's not all. Some errors & omissions policies can fix a mistake before your client is even aware of it, thereby preventing a claim in the first place.
Errors & omissions insurance protects your business. No one else's.
So you have to decide what level of cover is enough for you. Consider what you do, who you do it for and how much it's worth. Think about worst-case scenario and what could go wrong. What's the most expensive mistake you could make (or be accused of making)?
Always bear in mind that you can't have too much cover. Your legal defence can cost many tens of thousands of dollars – and that's before the compensation bill from your client arrives. Your level of cover has to be enough to cover all of this.
It's a tricky one to get right. Therefore the package we provide via USLI gives $1,000,000 of cover for each claim and comes with a $0 deductible.
General liability is handy if you go out and about on business (eg, to meetings or to install equipment), or if visitors come to you.
It protects you if a third party claims you've damaged their property or injured someone. It's useful if you're clumsy, of course, but it's more useful combatting those who subscribe to 'where there's blame there's a claim'.
This packaged policy provides coverage for damage to buildings, fixtures, fitting, permanently installed machinery and equipment, and applicances used for refrigerating, ventilation, cooking etc. You're also covered for the physical loss of property you own that is used for your business and the property of others that is in your care.
Glad you asked.
The simple answer is: we know what we're doing. e&o and business owners insurance is all we do so we know what you need, even if you don't.
We also know that buying insurance can be, well, a bit of a pain. So we make sure getting yours is quick and hassle-free.
We do all that while treating you like a human being, too. You won't find a call centre here. Or a phone menu. And we've banned nonsense insurance jargon.
