What Is Consultants Insurance?

Consultant insurance is designed to protect you from potential claims. Providing professional advice and services could result in financial losses for clients. Insurance for consultants helps cover potential lawsuits, errors, negligence claims, and other liabilities.

How Much is Consultant Insurance?

Consultant insurance starts at $229 per year or $21 per month. The cost can vary depending on your business’s gross income, selected coverages, and coverage limits.

We keep our polices affordable through:

  • US-based, licensed agents who don’t make a commission on helping you.

Is Professional Liability Insurance for Consultants Necessary?

If you answer yes to any of these questions then you need professional liability insurance.

  • Do you charge a fee to provide specialized expertise, services, or opinions?
  • Do you provide technology services?
  • Do you have any clients that require you to be insured?
  • Do you support clients administratively?

As a consultant, you are vulnerable to several different types of claims and it is important to protect your business from the financial strain of expensive claims. While some claims may not be too expensive, it is more common to experience claims that cost several thousand dollars. You don’t need to worry about that! That is what insurance for consultants is for.

What’s Covered in Consultant Insurance?

We recommend consultants include several different coverages on their professional liability insurance for consultants’ policy. Our recommended coverages include: 

General Liability Coverage

General Liability coverage can provide financial protection from third-party bodily injury and property damage claims. This coverage covers settlement costs, legal expenses, and damages awarded in lawsuits that ensure consultants have financial protection in a field where unexpected accidents can happen.

Professional Liability Coverage

Professional liability coverage protects from the cost of claims that stem from your business operations. A common claim could include a client suing you over misinformation or faulty professional advice.

Errors and Omission Coverage

Errors and omission (E&O) coverage protects from the financial stress of claims that stem from misinformation or faulty business practices. Errors and omissions insurance can also protect you from claims that  stem from  your business practices.

Cyber Liability Coverage

Cyber liability coverage protects your consulting business in the event of a cyber security attack. If you store client information online, you are susceptible to cybersecurity breaches. We highly recommend adding this coverage to your policy.

Tools and Equipment Coverage

Tools and equipment coverage provides a financial buffer in case your business equipment is stolen or damaged. Tools and equipment coverage can help repair or replace damaged or stolen equipment.

Coverage Limits for Consultant Insurance

The most your policy will pay in a 12 month policy period for bodily injury and property damage claims that you become legally obligated to pay due to your business and professional services.

$3,000,000

The maximum amount your policy will pay in a 12-month period for bodily injury and property damage claims that result from the products you use to perform your services. However, it does not cover products that are manufactured, sold, or distributed.

$1,000,000

The amount that your policy will pay for claims arising out of one or more of the following offenses:
– False Arrest, detention or imprisonment
– Malicious prosecution
– Wrongful Eviction or Wrongful Entry
– Oral or written publications that slander or libels a person or organization
