As a publisher, you have a duty to make sure that the work you put in print (or online) meets certain quality standards. If you don’t, you could find yourself named in an expensive liability lawsuit. But something many publishers don’t realize is that, even if you do everything right, you might still get sued.
The good news is that media liability insurance can protect small publishers from the devastating costs associated with liability lawsuits. If you’re accused of copyright infringement, for example, an Errors and Omissions Insurance policy may be able to cover the cost of a lawyer to defend you in court. Or if someone gets a papercut from your books and it becomes gangrenous and they have massive medical bills, the resulting lawsuit might be covered by a General Liability Insurance policy.
The point is: you don’t know what will happen once you publish work and send it into the world. Media liability insurance can help manage your uncertainty by providing financial support in certain worst-case scenarios.
