Re: Professional Liability Insurance for the

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have professional liability insurance (250K/500K w/1K deductible) thru
Westport Insurance (a subsidiary of General Electric).
Cost is 1860 per year, but that depends on your annual billings.  I think
that $1860 is the least premium on $50K per year -- mine is just a side
business out of my home on weekends and nights.  You can call the company
at 800-221-2236 for an agent in your area to work with.  I've talked to
other companies and they always say westport is the cheapest and a good
company to work with.  Good Luck
