Errors and Omissions Insurance in Troy and Piqua, OH

Errors and omissions refer to mistakes, negligence, or discrepancies in a business’s accounting records, which can possibly be interpreted as fraud and lead to legal action. Business owners and executives have several legal and financial responsibilities that accompany their roles, and if they fail to fulfill these responsibilities by inaccurately reporting income, errors and omissions insurance will reimburse a business for problems arising from these fiduciary oversights.

As a business owner, you know how important it is to live up to your promises. Consumer trust is a key part of earning repeat business, which in turn helps to create a stronger, healthier, and more profitable company.

Errors and omissions claims have been trending higher in recent years, with multiple‑million dollar lawsuits being filed more frequently than ever before. Accordingly, most businesses need to have appropriate coverage amounts to be sure they're protected if a large claim is filed.

What E&O Insurance Covers

Policies can vary, but most forms of errors and omissions insurance cover the following. Note that some industries don't need all of the coverage mentioned below, while others may need additional coverage because of the nature of their operations. Koverman Staley Dickerson Insurance Agency agents will help you determine which coverages are best for you.

  • Claims and Damages: These are one of the major sources of potential loss that your company faces. E&O protection on claims can reimburse you for any payouts you may have to make as a result of such claims being filed.
  • Defense Costs: Whether or not you win a case, your attorney is going to expect payment. E&O insurance can reimburse you for their fees, allowing you to hire professional support without worrying that it will be too expensive for you to afford.
  • Employees, Temporary Staff, and Independent Contractors: You may be liable for the actions that anyone associated with your business takes—whether or not they're an employee. This part of the policy protects you if they make a mistake.
  • Negligence: Often considered one of the most important parts of E&O coverage, negligence coverage can reimburse you for problems like making a mistake while giving advice or failing to complete a job. Whatever the cause of the problem, ensuring you're covered will help protect your business if something goes wrong.

Errors and omissions policies payouts vary among companies depending on the possible severity of financial mishaps. If you're not sure how much of a cap your business should have in each category, call one of Koverman Staley Dickerson Insurance Agency agents today and ask them for more information. You may need to increase your policy cap as your business grows, and we can help you decide when it's time to raise the limit.

Testimonials

It was January 26, Carla’s birthday. While visiting her mother that day, in Dublin, Ohio, she got a call that our home was on fire. When she arrived home, an hour and a half later, the firemen were still there and so was our insurance agent, Joe Dickerson. Joe was nothing but comforting and supportive that day, as was our whole experience with Koverman Dickerson Insurance. As we would never have known what to do next, Joe had already started the process of restoration. Within hours Chris Morgan of Cincinnati Insurance and Mike Stacy of Airway Construction and Restoration were at the house assessing the damage, sealing off the roof (snowy, 19 degrees) and working late into the night to make sure the house was secure before they left the property. Everyone was prompt, thorough, and followed through until our home was restored in excellent condition. Through the whole process we never worried about our living arrangements, our house, or our property. All of the payments were made to all parties involved in the restoration process in a very timely manner. Even though this was a difficult experience, Joe Dickerson, the Koverman Dickerson family, Cincinnati Insurance, and Airway Construction have provided comfort, support, and wonderful service.

Here at Milcon Concrete, we have been a client of Koverman Dickerson Insurance since 1995 and have been very satisfied with their service. We have found them to be very customer driven and helped us expand our business by over 50%. In the construction industry it is very important to have an insurance agent that understands the business and reacts to the ever changing environment. Koverman Dickerson has proven to be a great partner over the years and I would recommend them to anyone. It is hard to find companies that respond to your needs with as much diligence and care as they do.
