Public Relations Insurance
Business Insurance for Communications and PR Pros

The work of a public relations professional is inherently tricky. Often, you’re called in because a situation is already delicate and your expertise is required to smooth things over. But even the most tactful and strategic PR professionals sometimes find themselves on the receiving end of angry accusations of libel, slander, or defamation.

Luckily, media liability insurance can save the day if you’re named in a lawsuit accusing you of wrongdoing. In fact, with adequate business insurance in place, you can rest assured knowing that even the steepest legal bills can be covered by your insurance carrier so you can continue focusing on spreading the good word about your clients.

As a public relations or communications professional, you may find that client contracts require you to carry…

  • Errors and Omissions Insurance: This policy, also called media liability insurance, can help cover the cost of attorneys’ fees, court costs, settlements, and judgments if you’re accused of slander, libel, or other types of character defamation. More broadly, E&O Insurance typically offers protection when you’re accused of doing your work in a negligent way or failing to uphold the terms of a contract.
  • General Liability Insurance: This policy is the starting point for many small businesses. It offers coverage for legal costs associated with third-party injuries and property damage that happen in your office or business premises.

In addition to these two, a Commercial Property Insurance policy may also benefit your public relations practice, offering funds to repair or replace any equipment, gear, or premises that are damaged by covered events.
