Errors and Omissions (E&O) – Professional Liability Insurance
In order to protect against claims such as being accused of making a mistake in their work, notaries need errors and omissions insurance, which is also known as professional liability insurance, and E&O for short. Errors and omissions is often confused with general liability insurance, however they are very different coverages. General liability insurance does not cover against claims related to mistakes in work, which is where errors and omissions comes in. Errors and omissions, or professional liability, is the most important insurance for notaries to carry.
General Liability Insurance
General liability policies do not cover the professional services that notaries provide, however they can protect a notary in the event that a client or third party accuses them of accidentally causing bodily injury or property damage to others. General Liability insurance is most commonly carried by mobile notaries and notaries that rent or own an office that they work out of, but can be of use to all notaries.
