Professionals who commonly turn to this type of liability insurance for coverage include, among others:
- • Home Inspectors
- • Lawyers
- • Physicians
- • Real Estate Brokers

Professional Liability Considerations
Because professionals such as architects, lawyers, physicians, real estate brokers, technology consultants and others can cause claims without bodily injury, property damage, personal injury or an advertising injury claim, additional coverage is needed to fill this gap. For example, if a web design platform fails to perform properly, it would not cause bodily injury, property damage or advertising injuries. Because of this, the general liability policy would not be triggered. But because the web design platform not performing correctly could directly cause financial losses, and may be attributed to a misrepresentation of the platform’s capabilities, the professional liability coverage would be triggered.
