Professional Liability Insurance:

As a real estate agent, if you fail to disclose information that may otherwise discourage a client from buying the property, that client may sue you for professional negligence. Your Errors & Omissions Insurance can help cover the legal expenses associated with the accusation. 

Malpractice Insurance:

As a doctor, a misdiagnosis could cause the patient’s condition to worsen. A lawsuit from the misdiagnosis may threaten your practice. With Professional Liability Insurance, your legal expenses such as the settlements and judgements, can be covered.
