Whether you’re a digital artist, brand consultant or copy writer, it’s important that you protect yourself financially. A single lawsuit can be devastating to your business and few can afford to cover the costs out of pocket. Luckily, EasyCover offers professional liability insurance to digital media specialists in Winnipeg. We also offer optional liability protection like cyber. Even better? We make it easy to get insurance.  

What does professional liability insurance cover for digital media specialists in Winnipeg? 

 Professional liability insurance can cover your legal expenses if you’re sued for causing financial loss as a result of your service or advice. This includes defence costs, judgement awards and settlements.  

Our coverage is also retroactive. This means that you’re covered for all your work – including claims made during the policy period for the projects you did before you were our client – as long as you have a policy with us. Just remember you need to disclose any circumstances that may result in a claim!  

For example, let’s say you designed a new logo for a client. A few months later, they were sued for copyright infringement – the logo they chose is very similar to another company’s logo. Your client then sued you to recoup their costs for the logo and the lawsuit. Professional liability insurance could help you cover your legal expenses in this situation. 

How much professional liability insurance do digital media consultants in Winnipeg require? 

We offer three optional limits of professional liability insurance for digital media consultants in Winnipeg: 

  • $1,000,000 
  • $2,000,000 
  • $5,000,000 

Choose the amount of protection that best fits your company’s needs. Consider your annual revenue, number of clients, value of each individual project, your contractual obligations and the likelihood and expected cost of a lawsuit in your industry.

Are there any optional coverages available for digital media specialists in Winnipeg? 

Yes, at EasyCover we offer three additional optional coverages: commercial general liability, cyber liability and directors and officers liability

Cyber Liability 

This covers recovery costs after a cyber-attack or data breach. This can include legal defence costs, regulatory fines, public relations repair and more, up to your policy limit. As cyber-attacks are on the rise and can target any type of business, we recommend all customers carry this affordable protection.  

Commercial General Liability 

This coverage is standard for many businesses. It helps cover your expenses if a third party is injured or has their property damaged by you or an employee due to negligent acts. A common example is someone slipping on the walkway into your premises and injuring themselves.  

Note: This coverage does not protect your employees or your company’s property.  

Directors and Officers Liability 

This coverage helps protect your personal assets if you’re sued personally for breaching your responsibilities as a director or officer of an organization. It helps cover your legal expenses but does not cover any criminal acts.
