As an architect, engineer or design professional, you work hard to protect your firm, your reputation and your bottom line from any number of liability risks. Whether it's unforeseen site conditions, environmental exposures, improperly estimating project costs, unintentional errors in design or miscommunication over a client's expectations, lawsuits can arise over specific exposures that may lead to unexpected or devastating judgments. While you're looking after the best interest of your clients, you need a trusted carrier that will help you look after yours as well.
CNA's Professional Liability Insurance (Errors & Omissions) for architects, engineers and design professionals such as landscape architects, land surveyors, environmental consultants, and miscellaneous construction consultants, covers various types of potential exposures that are not typically covered under your general liability policy. Often, general liability policies do not cover industry-specific exposures. Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance provides coverage against claims of negligence or mistakes that cause financial harm to another person or company such as negligence, misrepresentation, design errors, and inaccurate advice, and covers both the obligation to pay damages for covered claims and the cost to defend against such claims.
As the nation's leading insurance provider of professional liability insurance, CNA has more than 50 years of experience servicing architects, engineers and design professionals. We work closely with a number of professional associations and are commended by the National Society of Professional Engineers® (NSPE).
