Environmental consultants have very fulfilling careers in which they help companies reduce their carbon footprint in order to safeguard our planet’s resources. In most cases, environmental consultants work for a firm with a client base including the public sector, commercial organizations and even the government. These professionals assess a variety of environmental factors and design and implement processes by which companies can minimize environmental damage and work within environmental laws and regulations.
Even though environmental consultants do such valuable work, they, like any other professional consultants, are capable of giving bad advice, which can be very costly to clients. For this reason, these professionals should purchase environmental consultant professional liability insurance. This type of policy covers the costs of legal defense if allegations are made against an environmental consultant, whether baseless or grounded, along with any resulting settlements (up to policy limits).
Clients can sue an environmental consultant based on allegations of professional negligence, performance failure and any other number of factors in which the consultant does not uphold the contract with the client.
Even the best professionals make occasional mistakes or let something important slip their mind. We're only human. But, if one of these accidental blunders results in a lawsuit, the resulting expenses can be financially detrimental for the firm. In fact, in order to protect both the firm's assets and the clients' interests, many companies require these consultants to own this type of insurance before making any deals to work together.
