AnswerYep, You have to have insurance for everything.To be more specific, you need two types of insurance for a Home Watch business. You need general liability and you need Professional Liability, also called Errors and Omissions Insurance.General Liability protects you while inside the home from pre-existing conditions and general risks such as a toilet that backs up while you are in the house.Professional Liability is in case you miss something that you should have seen as a Home Watch Professional. Roof leaks that are clearly visible but that you missed would be covered by this 'errors and omissions' insurance.The insurance is not easy to find.

need more info? they lost application? getting a reprint of a policy is very easy. if they lost the homeowners policy application that is something else entirely. did you pay any portion of the premium due? I assume you are posting because you had a loss? You may need legal consultation - insurance agents have insurance (called errors and omissions) to cover them in these types of events (assuming they are responsible)

Yes--you need to be insured for completed operations. Namely, that your service will not hurt anyone (i.e. contractors, etc.)AnswerYou will need a general liability policy to be covered and you may also want to secure an errors and omissions policy. Any company that provides a service to someone for a fee can be sued for any error or omission they cause. Many of the error and omission claims are not paid out, but in the event you are sued the errors and omissions policy will cover your defense costs which are often times more expensive then the actual claim.

Professional liability insurance comes in several forms, depending upon your profession. For example, if you are a doctor, you would want medical malpractice insurance. A lawyer would need errors and omissions insurance. There is even insurance for IT workers. You can find insurance for any type of service profession, but you may need to seek out more than one company. To save time, it is best to consult an independent insurance agent. The agent can check the rates and policies of several different companies at once, and find the best fit for you.

If you want to be insured against liability for a mistake on the paperwork it would be advisable. Your Commercial Liability policy would not provide coverage for damages or losses resulting from errors or mistakes in the professional service you provide.

They need to be concerened about Errors & Ommissions. They also need to worry about completed operations insurance.

Business insurance is a good idea for businesses of all sizes. Every businessowner has the potential to injure their clients or cause them to believe they have been injured even though every businessowner may go out of their way to make their clients happy. Most of the time they succeed, but there may also be times when they will not.Malpractice InsuranceIt's for those times when businessowners fail to meet the expectations of their clients that business insurance is very useful. For example, in the event that their clients believe a professional hasn't performed his or her duties satisfactorily and has caused injury to them, they may sue these professionals for negligence. One type of business insurance that protects its policyholders from this type of lawsuit is malpractice insurance which pays for the legal defense and the judgment that may levied against the professional.Errors and Omissions InsuranceAnother type of professional insurance is errors and omissions insurance. Professionals such as real estate agents may be good candidates for purchasing errors and omissions insurance. In the event that a client believes that the insurance agents have committed an act that has resulted in a financial loss, a lawsuit may be in the real estate agent's future. Errors and omissions insurance also takes over payment for legal expenses.Product Liability InsuranceAnother time that businessowners can be sued for negligence is if they create a product. The customer who purchased the product may have been hurt in the process of using it and decide to sue the manufacturer. In these cases, the type of business insurance manufacturers need would be product liability insurance. If the product has a defect that causes it to malfunction and injure the user, this insurance will cover legal bills or a settlement if the businessowner decides to settle out of court.Not all businessowners need every type of business insurance. In order to discover if one type of business insurance is a wise purchase for them or not, businessowners just need to assess how likely they are to fall victim to each particular situation. For example, if a business creates a product that has a high probability of causing injuries, then product liability may be a good purchase. The product could be something such as an oven that will heat up to an extremely high temperature. The potential for burns would be very high in this case and the oven manufacturer would be making a good investment in product liability insurance.

WHAT "was all bank error"?? IF the whole entire repo "was all bank error", then you need an attorney now. ASAP. The bank has insurance to cover "errors and omissions".

Hi! You will need Errors and Omissions Insurance. This is basically a liability insurance policy that covers you, your employees and the company from claims of inadequate or negligent work. In addition to E&O insurance, you may also need general liability and commercial auto insurance. If you have a physical office and travel from location to location, general liability insurance will cover you in the event of a client or vendor being hurt while working on your job. A commercial auto policy will cover you if you are specifically using your vehicle for business purposes. Last but not least, if you are planning on having employees, you must also have worker's compensation insurance to limit your liability if an employee is hurt on the job. I hope this helps!

why is there a need for insurance? why is there a need for insurance?

No, but if an attorney is not used, mistakes that will hurt your case, will surely be made. The process of creating an interrogatory, or answering one, requires an attorney if you wish to avoid costly errors and omissions.
