Manufacturers’ errors and omissions (E&O) 

Manufacturers’ E&O insurance responds if you are legally obligated to pay for a financial loss sustained by others due to an error or omission in the designing, manufacturing, or installation of your product. In certain circumstances, Acuity’s broad coverage for losses includes the repair of replacement of your defective product, your customer’s subsequent financial loss, and your legal defense costs.  

Product liability 

Another kay area of protection involves lawsuits. If you are sued because a product you manufactured caused injury to someone, Acuity’s product liability coverage can protect you.   

 

Cybersecurity  

You need cyber liability coverage if you could be responsible for or sustain a business loss due to, unintended spreading of malware or a deliberate act that prevents others from gaining access to your computer system through the Internet. We pay your defense for these claims.  Data and systems restoration as well as expenses resulting from a computer attack are also covered.

 

Employment-related practices liability insurance (ERPL)  

Acuity’s employment-related practices liability solution is an essential part of your risk management strategy. It protects you against employment-related practices claims.
