-- Errors & omissions (E&O) insurance, also known as professional liability insurance (PLI) and professional indemnity insurance (PII) is a crucial form of coverage for professionals dealing with indoor air quality (IAQ) consulting services. E&O insurance helps to protect IAQ consultants who provide advice and services from the full cost of defending against negligence claims and damages awarded in civil lawsuits.
Indoor air quality complaints can range from issues dealing with allergens, asthma triggers and microbial pathogens to concerns over exposure to asbestos, lead and various chemicals. Any of these issues in many cases could end up involved with lawsuits and claims. E&O insurance in the IAQ consulting industry is a critical component necessary to protect IAQ consultants in this highly litigious field.
One of the leading providers of E&O insurance for IAQ consultants is Legends Environmental Insurance Services. Legends has been in business since 1973 and is one of the premier insurance providers for the industry.
“An error or omission, a mistake, which causes financial harm to another, can occur on almost any transaction in any profession, but this is especially true in the IAQ industry,” reported Brian Mcfarland, Vice President of Legends. “E&O insurance helps to protect a professional, an individual or a company, from bearing the full cost of defense for lawsuits relating to an error or omission in providing covered professional services. This is a separate coverage from a standard general liability or property insurance policy and it’s important that IAQ consultants review their coverage to determine if they are properly protected.”
To date, thousands of IAQ consultants, contractors and environmental firms have utilized Legends for their insurance needs, making Legends one of the largest specialized insurance providers in the nation. To learn more about Legends Environmental Insurance Services please visit: www.Legends-
