Overview of the Committee’s Focus:

A variety of professional liability claims fills out the errors and omissions claim landscape that are less frequently litigated (individually) but nevertheless occupy the work of malpractice defense claims specialists. New types of professionals are born increasingly in which standard of care causes of action may be alleged to apply to their work along with general negligence, breach of contract, breach of warranty and similar causes. These professionals may include, for example:

Computer, Website, Internet and Cyber-Related Consultants

• Lien Collection Agencies

• Credit Counselors, Credit Bureau, Collection Agencies

• Educational/Seminar Designer/Presenters

• Employment Agency/Executive Search Firms

• Actuaries

• Homeowners Associations

• Mortgage Brokers/Bankers

• Freight Forwarder/Customs House Brokers

• Translators

• Clinical/Analytical Testing Laboratories

• Bookkeeping/Tax Preparation Services

• Travel Agencies/Tour Operators

• Third Party Administrators/Claims Adjusters

• Business Brokers

• Media Groups

Title Abstractors

• Employment Practices Liabilities Defendants

• Employee Benefit Plan Consultants

• Standards Organizations

• School Districts/Teachers

• Management Consultants

• Interior Decorators

• Trustees/Fiduciaries

• Environmental Consultants

• Auctioneers

Property Managers

A plethora of new E&O insurance policies are being written in response to the growth of the exposures risk managers confront in adequately planning their insurance coverage portfolios. As with all professional liability claims the defense focus is to establish compliance with the applicable standard of care and to disprove causation, along with specialty defenses which may include the statute of limitations, contributory negligence or comparative fault, the economic loss doctrine, certificate of merit deficiencies, absence of a client relationship, failure to mitigate damages, contractual liability limitations and other defenses.

Committee members are asked to contribute to article publication, to monitor the PLDF news and respond to member inquiries for assistance, and to assist in annual meeting seminar presentation planning.
