Depending on the terms of the insurance agreement, a business umbrella insurance policy may provide some coverage for professional liabilities, such as errors and omissions.

Consult your agent to understand how a business umbrella policy can help protect your company.
Is Professional Liability Insurance the Same as Malpractice Insurance?
Malpractice Insurance is a type of errors and omissions (E&O) coverage initially designed for the healthcare industry. A professional liability policy may provide coverage for financial losses, while malpractice insurance may help cover physical losses.
Medical malpractice insurance might be more appropriate than professional liability insurance for medical professionals, such as surgeons, doctors, dentists, nurse practitioners and medical directors.
