Professional Liability

Mistakes Happen

In today’s litigious society, lawsuits against businesses are common. And as a business owner, you need to be prepared to protect the integrity of your company if an incident or mistake turns into a claim.

At Dowd Insurance Agency, we understand that mistakes happen. That is why we are committed to helping you create a Professional Liability policy that keeps your day-to-day operations protected should your business be held legally liable.

What Does Professional Liability Cover?

While it is important for your business to have general liability coverage for property damage and bodily injury, Dowd Insurance Agency recommends adding Professional Liability Insurance to your business portfolio because it insures the people and/or entities of your business from negligent claims made by third parties, or even internal sources.

From failure to render a service to malpractice suits, Professional Liability can provide a wide variety of options, such as:

Errors and Omissions Liability (E & O) – E & O covers any mistakes made by employees who work on behalf of your business, if your business charges fees for your services. It can include coverage for any errors such as failure to perform or violations of contract. Depending on your industry, your insurance needs will vary.

Directors and Officers Liability (D & O) - Having financial protection for your business’ Directors and Officers can prevent loss in the event that they are held liable from actions related to their corporate positions. This can include anything from conflicts of interest to mismanagement of company assets and violation of laws.

Fiduciary Liability - Fiduciary covers claims that involve the violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA. If a manager, for example, violates the financial obligations of ERISA, having the right coverage can protect your company if held liable in situations from imprudent investments to failure to enroll employees.

Employment Practices Liability - With proper insurance, your business can be protected if a worker claims that his or her rights have been violated. This can include violations from sexual harassment and discrimination to violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), mismanagement of employee benefit plans, and wrongful termination.

Dowd Insurance has been my insurance provider for several years and have always thought I had the best agency. I periodically check with other providers and Dowd Insurance has always equaled or topped competitors in their rates. I am a real estate agent and when I have a client needing an agent I refer them to Dowd Insurance.

I began working with Tom Dowd in 2006. I was very impressed early on because Tom took the time to really understand my business before recommending coverage that was tailored to our needs. I had no idea how little service our past provider was giving us. We do a complete review each year, and as my business evolves I trust Dowd Insurance to ensure we have the coverages my business needs to manage our risks appropriately. I feel like Dowd Insurance is part of the family. The team at Dowd Insurance are always responsive and professional. I am happy to say Integra is a life long customer.

I love working with Dowd Insurance! Sam and the team take such great care of me and my business. Whenever I need help, I know that they are just a phone call away! My husband and I have a family owned business in Austin too, so we know how much it means to work with people we know, like and TRUST. If you have a small business, you should definitely give them a shout! You will be thrilled with the level of knowledge and care that they provide their clients.

As the owner of COMPLETE weddings + events, a special event entertainment provider at over 650 events annually in Central Texas, I was interested in building a relationship with a seasoned professional for our business insurance needs. Dowd Insurance has become an valued partner as our business continues to grow and transform. As a professional in the service industry, we have high expectations for excellent customer service. We are thankful for their quick response and knowledge at every step. As a full service Insurance agency, I transferred our personal insurance coverage to Dowd as well. We look forward to a long relationship and rest well knowing we have a great team at Dowd to support us along the way!
