Conclusion

Clients don't need much to claim your business made them lose money — and suddenly, you have an errors and omissions lawsuit on your hands. A lawsuit forces you to hire a lawyer, which is expensive even when the suit is dropped. In worst-case scenarios, the lawsuit drags out for years, you lose the case, and you have to pay your client damages. Fortunately, you can buy an Errors and Omissions Insurance policy to help you cover these unexpected and inconvenient costs. That way, you can stay focused on your business — not complicated legal distractions.
