Professional Liability Insurance covers alleged failure to perform and financial loss caused by error or omissions in services or products sold by the policyholder. Such potential causes for legal action would not be covered by a more general liability insurance policies.
Law requires professional liability insurance for medical and legal professionals and some other professionals. It can also be required under contract by other businesses that receive advice or service. Medical professionals call this type of coverage malpractice insurance.
