Errors And Omissions Insurance
In an increasingly litigious society, errors and omissions insurance can protect your company and you personally if you are sued by a client for something you did or failed to do. Even if the allegations have no merit, defending yourself or your company may cost thousands of dollars.
At Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP, our attorneys represent companies as well as professionals who have disputes with their insurance carrier concerning an errors and omissions claim. We have offices in New York City, New Jersey and Colorado.
Defense Against Professional Negligence Claims
Errors and omissions insurance (E&O) is known as malpractice insurance for doctors, dentists and other health care professionals. It is often called professional liability insurance for lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers and other professionals. Regardless of what the coverage is called, the basic protection is the same: It protects you and your company against negligence claims.
The following are examples of the types of issues our lawyers handle:
- Coverage analysis and opinions
- Failure to defend you against a negligence claim
- Litigation of contested or denied claims
Our attorneys also provide risk management guidance for self-insured businesses. Consistent with the firm’s philosophy of early intervention to minimize risk, we will help you anticipate your insurance needs so that you are properly covered in all situations.
