Why do I need IT Consultant Insurance?

As an IT consultant, you work with various businesses in order to help them achieve their business goals. Your advice and actions instill them with the confidence they need to overcome every obstacle they might encounter on the path towards success. You know what everyone else is just afraid to admit: IT’s the coolest.

In order to thrive as a professional consultant, you need to have that same confidence in everything you do. Often, a company’s fate might rest in your hands. They depend upon you to boldly take charge of their cloud, network, security, compliance and privacy actions. And under the umbrella of IT strategies, there are countless opportunities for things to go wrong.

If you’re brought in as a professional consultant, a bad piece of advice could result in a data breach and the loss of millions of dollars worth of private data. If you don’t have professional liability insurance and general liability insurance coverage, you could be sued for damages and forced to hire a legal team in your defense.

You never know what life might throw your way. That’s why you need to be prepared with Thimble insurance company. Our IT Consultant Insurance lets you go about your job with the confidence you need to succeed.

Don’t risk it. Protect yourself and your business. Get signed up today with our professional services!

What does IT Consultant Insurance cover?

Thimble IT Consultant Professional and General Liability Insurance could safeguard you from a variety of tricky situations, including:

Third-party, non-employee bodily injury: You leave your tools in the hallway behind you as you’re working on the office server. A busy secretary isn’t paying attention to where she’s walking and trips over your items, breaking her wrist. She rushes to Urgent Care where she sees a doctor, has an x-ray, and is given a cast. Now, she wants you to pay for the treatment and rehabilitation from this bodily injury.

Third-party property damage: A client asked you to revamp his home office. Part of this involves tearing out the old server. As you carry it out in parts, a piece of metal catches on the couple’s expensive silk drapes, tearing them completely. Now, the client’s wife wants you to pay to replace them.

Defense costs: You’re moving through a client’s house with your hands full of items. As you walk through the dining room, you fail to see their young boy in your path. You bump into one another and the child is sent sprawling. As he falls, he grabs the tablecloth upon which rests beneath $20,000 worth of antique china dishware. The dishes are destroyed and the clients take you to court. You will need a legal team to prove that you weren’t at fault.

Errors & omissions: While you are working for a large company, you accidentally delete a large folder on a server. It represents hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of data loss. They sue you for your negligence.

How much does IT Consultant Insurance cost?

The cost of an IT Consultant Insurance policy with Thimble is tied to the risks you face.

This is because, with Thimble insurance coverage, you only need to pay for your plan when you’re working. You can purchase a plan by the hour, day, or month. And unlike with traditional insurance companies, Additional Insureds are free of charge.
