Professional Liability or Errors and Omissions insurance provides coverage for liability resulting from errors or omissions in the performance of professional duties.

Claims Made Basis Liability
If a claim is made during the time period when a liability policy is in effect, an insurance company is responsible for its payment,

up to the limits of the policy, regardless of when the business submits the claim. Experts often suggest that it is extremely important,

term. Renewal claims-made policies usually have the retroactive date of the first policy issued to the insured. When this is not
done, there is a gap in coverage.
