Geotechnical Engineering Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance

We offer errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, also called professional liability insurance, to geotechnical engineers who work in all fields. Geotechnical engineering deals with various structures involving soil, rock, and water. Geotechnical engineers typically work on project involving foundations, retaining walls, slopes, dams, tunnels, landfills, and deep excavations.

Do geotechnical engineers need errors and omissions insurance?

Geotechnical engineering is a specialty which is expensive to insure due to the nature of the work and the costs involved to correct any potential error or omissions made by the engineer.

Geotechnical engineers face exposure to malpractice lawsuits based on alleged breach of contract and failure to exercise due care. If found as having been negligent, geotechnical engineers can be held responsible for significant damages. Lawsuits against geotechnical engineers can be based on issues such as error in design, construction defect, calculation error, and failure to follow standards or regulations.

Even if a lawsuit is not justified, geotechnical engineers still face costly legal fees. It is therefore vital that they carry the proper E&O insurance protection.
