Errors & Omissions/Professional Liability

MediaGuard

  • “All risk” coverage goes beyond specified “named perils” to include risks arising out of the core functions of advertising, broadcasting, publishing and video and film production
  • Built-in coverage for advertising content
  • Negligent publication coverage for any claim alleging harm to a person or entity that acted or failed to act in reliance upon the information published

If your company collects and disseminates information, then you face the same litany of media liability exposures as a publisher, broadcaster, advertising agency, video or film producer, or any other media organizer. Chubb’s MediaGuard policy offers E&O liability protection for both traditional and non-traditional media organizations.
