If everything in your work looks right and you get appropriate signatures
approving your work, but it is discovered later that you made an error, like
a misplaced comma (, then you
_could_ be held liable for consequential damages. It doesn't matter if you
would be found not liable in a trial, litigation will cost you and insurance
will cover your costs.
