What is errors and omissions insurance?

Businesses that provide advice, consultancy, or offer a professional service should consider errors and omissions (E&O) insurance. If you handle data or intellectual property belonging to your clients, it's often a contractual requirement. Errors and omissions insurance is also known as professional indemnity insurance.

Benefits of errors and omissions insurance

Cover against mistakes

We all make mistakes from time to time - that's just life. But when you or your employees give bad advice or make a mistake it can end up costing your client, and you, big time! Professional Indemnity (PI) will cover you for the costs arising from negligence claims made against you.

Protect your reputation

For most of us, reputation is a key element of ongoing success. Our cover provides public relationship and crisis management, to help protect your brand and reputation when things go wrong.

Intellectual property infringement

With today's rate of content creation, your chances of accidentally breaching copyright and intellectual property (IP) are increasing. With our cover, you're not only covered for your mistakes, but we'll pay up to £25,000 in legal costs defending your business from others.

We're rated excellent by our customers

Excellent value at an affordable monthly cost. I have not needed use the services. But its good to know I have the insurance there to allow me to get on with my work.

James, J. Black Photography

Flexible. simple, easy, immediate. As a busy freelancer I need flexibility to potentially change the policy month by month - very handy and a feature I didn't find with other providers.

Tim, Graphic Design Freelancer

Excellent service, and really lovely people. Completely understanding of small or start up businesses, and a willingness/ability to be flexible. I'm very happy.

Lorna, Magic Penny Gifts

A super slick interface and all around great experience. Thumbs up Digital Risks! Having spoken to a number of "large" insurers, the pricing I received from Digital Risks was much more competitively priced for "like for like" cover. Highly recommended.

Jonathan, Frello
