Errors or omissions insurance (E&O), also known as professional indemnity insurance (PII), is a type of liability insurance that protects individuals and businesses who provide professional advice & services from having to pay the full cost of defending against a client's negligence claim, as well as damages awarded in such a civil lawsuit. The coverage focuses on the policyholder's alleged failure to perform, financial loss caused by, and error or omission in the service or product sold. These are legal causes of action that would be excluded from a more general liability insurance policy that covers more direct forms of harm. Professional liability insurance can take many different forms and names depending on the profession, particularly in the medical and legal fields, and is sometimes required by other businesses who benefit from the advice or service. Therefore, the surge in demand is expected to boost the Error & Omissions Insurance Market growth in the upcoming period.

Even if you are completely innocent, a frivolous lawsuit can cost you thousands of dollars in attorney fees and lost time. Few things can be as costly and inconvenient as defending a frivolous lawsuit filed by a vengeful customer. And if you do not have the right coverage in place, even a single frivolous lawsuit could bankrupt your company. Therefore, the provision of safety to the customers from frivolous lawsuits is driving the growth of the Error & Omissions Insurance Market size during the forecast period.

One benefit of E&O insurance that is often overlooked is the ability to reduce premium costs. The customer can lower their overall premium by reducing risk in the workplace. Background checks, safety training, and safe working conditions for employees are examples of such actions. Over time, the fewer claims a customer has on their policy, the lower their E&O rates will be. A customer pays a small amount upfront to avoid paying a much larger and crippling sum later on.
