Why is it Important for California Insurance Agents to have E&O Insurance?
California insurance agents and brokers face significant exposure to professional and malpractice claims, including the following:
Failure to recommend the proper insurance product
Failure to bind or renew insurance policy on time
Failure to recommend adequate policy limit
Failure to provide correct specimen policy for review
Failure to disclose policy exclusions
Failure to disclose material information
