Professional Liability

Typically, general liability policies do not protect against situations that arise out of business or professional pursuits.  Due to this gap in coverage, professional liability insurance is purchased to adequately cover your exposures.  This coverage is necessary for individuals that hold themselves out to the general public as having greater than average expertise in particular areas.

  • Coverage specifically for those that specialize in professional fields
  • Liability arising out of a professional’s negligent acts, errors and omissions during the course of practice
  • Exposure exists for the professional, professional’s employees, or others for whom the professional has responsibility
  • Standard General Liability policies specifically exclude Professional Liability

Specifically tailored to your business, professional programs designed by Appleby & Wyman ensure that you will be provided the broadest possible coverage, at a competitive rate.

  • Lawyers
  • Doctors/Physicians
  • Architects
  • Dentists
  • Surgeons
  • Accountants
  • Engineers
  • Consultants
