Professional Liability

Mistakes Happen

In today’s litigious society, lawsuits against businesses are common. And as a business owner, you need to be prepared to protect the integrity of your company if an incident or mistake turns into a claim.

At Poteet & Poteet, we understand that mistakes happen. That is why we are committed to helping you create a Professional Liability policy that keeps your day-to-day operations protected should your business be held legally liable.

What Does Professional Liability Cover?

While it is important for your business to have general liability coverage for property damage and bodily injury, Poteet & Poteet recommends adding Professional Liability Insurance to your business portfolio because it insures the people and/or entities of your business from negligent claims made by third parties, or even internal sources.

From failure to render a service to malpractice suits, Professional Liability can provide a wide variety of options, such as:

Errors and Omissions Liability (E & O) – E & O covers any mistakes made by employees who work on behalf of your business, if your business charges fees for your services. It can include coverage for any errors such as failure to perform or violations of contract. Depending on your industry, your insurance needs will vary.

Directors and Officers Liability (D & O) - Having financial protection for your business’ Directors and Officers can prevent loss in the event that they are held liable from actions related to their corporate positions. This can include anything from conflicts of interest to mismanagement of company assets and violation of laws.

Fiduciary Liability - Fiduciary covers claims that involve the violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA. If a manager, for example, violates the financial obligations of ERISA, having the right coverage can protect your company if held liable in situations from imprudent investments to failure to enroll employees.

Employment Practices Liability - With proper insurance, your business can be protected if a worker claims that his or her rights have been violated. This can include violations from sexual harassment and discrimination to violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), mismanagement of employee benefit plans, and wrongful termination.

I have known Chuck Poteet for several years and have been his customer when he was at other firms. I was extremely happy when he told me that he was creating his own company. His level of understanding my business is unlike any other insurance professional I have known and done business. He is constantly looking for ways to help me manage risk and protect my profits.

“Five years ago I was looking for a new broker because my current broker wasn’t keeping pace with my rapid rate of growth. Chuck Poteet was referred to me by one of his clients, we met and immediately I knew he was abreast of the current risk scenarios I am faced with every day from my customers and employees. He designed a Property & Casualty and Healthcare proposal that are helping me maintain profits and valuable employees.”

“Earlier this year I was searching for a new health plan for my employees. I met Chuck Poteet and Gary Theriot at Poteet & Poteet, who were eager to answer my questions about group healthcare coverage, competitive plans and the future of healthcare in America. They did their research and came back with a proposal that fit my budget. Thank You Chuck and Gary!”
