It’s not about your professionalism, training, or years of experience. Sometimes mistakes happen, no matter how much experience we have. The simplest clerical error or proofreading mistake (even made by a trainee) can cost you, if it results in financial loss or damage to the reputation of one of your customers. Errors and omissions protects you from claims in the event a client sues your service-oriented business for negligent acts, errors or omissions occurring during business activities, and which potentially result in a financial loss for the client.
If you’re in the business of providing services to clients for a fee—doctors, lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, wedding planners, printers, building contractors, mortgage and real estate services, designers, advertising agencies—if your service has the potential to be done incorrectly or late, and it costs your client money or harms their reputation, you need to consider E&O.

Benefits of a specialized E&O policy may also include:
