Architects and Engineers Errors and Omissions Insurance Coverages
The cornerstone of any architect and engineer insurance program is the architect and engineer errors and omissions liability (also called a professional liability) policy. This is usually the greatest expense to a firm, and not surprisingly any firm’s greatest areas of risk. In addition to being a cost factor, it is the one policy that usually has a different policy form from all the other liability policies. There is no “standard” architect and engineer E&O policy form. Unlike general liability or auto, most carriers do not use a standard form with the same language across industries. Consider also that professional liability insurance policies for architects and engineers are “claims made” policies which are a different animal than your general liability policy. Understanding these polices are crucial. At Sunstone Insurance Agency, we help you understand the minutiae of your errors and omissions policy. It is only with this understanding that you can make the right decision for your business.
Another necessary component of an architect or engineer’s insurance coverage is a good general liability policy. We have access to many carriers interested in writing these policies for your firm, and can provide competitive pricing while not sacrificing coverage.
Depending on your circumstances, you may also need auto insurance, property insurance, workers compensation insurance, employment practices liability, and more.
Many times we can package all of these coverages together to give you a comprehensive package policy for your firm. Let us see if we can simplify your insurance program with all your necessary coverage with one carrier on a package policy.
