Hello, and congrats Lisa Bronson from another living in the bizarre weather state!

I used to be a sole proprietorship. I Incorporated as an S-Corp on January 01, 2003. I've never been sued, and I've never been asked by a client to have general liability insurance, until now.

So, I called my insurance agent. I didn't understand his explanation about liability insurance, but then he told me I needed error and omissions insurance IN ADDITION to the liability to protect myself from getting sued. I'm assuming I *could* get sued if, for example, when I was working at Toro, I DID NOT say "Do not use your new Toro Power 5000 to trim your chest high bushes." Then Toro gets sued by somebody that mowed the bushes and then I get sued for what I guess would be an "error" or an "omission".

So, what is the liability insurance for, exactly? And what about this E&O insurance? Good, bad, important, needed?

As an addendum, what is a hakis? I can't find it in any dictionaries, even my French-English one, and doesn't give an understandable explanation.... All other sites are so loaded with French that I can't understand a lot of it (my French is rusty!!)

Thanks for your help.



I'm nearly sublime in my pristine bleakness.
