Professional Liability in Taunton and Raynham, MA

Mistakes Happen

In today’s litigious society, lawsuits against businesses are common. And as a business owner, you need to be prepared to protect the integrity of your company if an incident or mistake turns into a claim.

At DGP Miles Insurance Agency, Inc., we understand that mistakes happen. That is why we are committed to helping you create a Professional Liability policy that keeps your day-to-day operations protected should your business be held legally liable.

What Does Professional Liability Cover?

While it is important for your business to have general liability coverage for property damage and bodily injury, DGP Miles Insurance Agency, Inc. recommends adding Professional Liability Insurance to your business portfolio because it insures the people and/or entities of your business from negligent claims made by third parties, or even internal sources.

From failure to render a service to malpractice suits, Professional Liability can provide a wide variety of options, such as:

Errors and Omissions Liability (E & O) – E & O covers any mistakes made by employees who work on behalf of your business, if your business charges fees for your services. It can include coverage for any errors such as failure to perform or violations of contract. Depending on your industry, your insurance needs will vary.

Directors and Officers Liability (D & O) - Having financial protection for your business’ Directors and Officers can prevent loss in the event that they are held liable from actions related to their corporate positions. This can include anything from conflicts of interest to mismanagement of company assets and violation of laws.

Fiduciary Liability - Fiduciary covers claims that involve the violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA. If a manager, for example, violates the financial obligations of ERISA, having the right coverage can protect your company if held liable in situations from imprudent investments to failure to enroll employees.

Employment Practices Liability - With proper insurance, your business can be protected if a worker claims that his or her rights have been violated. This can include violations from sexual harassment and discrimination to violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), mismanagement of employee benefit plans, and wrongful termination.

Contact a representative with DGP Miles Insurance Agency, Inc. today to prevent mistakes and errors from becoming major losses for your business.

Testimonials

Apptis began working with DGP Miles Insurance Agency in June 2007 to improve our risk management program. DGP Miles has designed and implemented a risk management portfolio that efficiently transfers our risk allowing us to focus on serving our customers. This new portfolio of policies provides us with greater limits at a reduced rate.
Bill Clarke, Project Controller, Apptis Holding Inc.
Thank you very much for your participation in the insurance renewal this year. You and your team did a very nice job marketing UNICCO’s Umbrella and Property coverage lines. Your involvement and assigned markets were instrumental with UNICCO having a successful Property & Casualty Insurance renewal. We thank you very much for all your diligence and efforts in this process.
Louis J Lanzillo, Jr., Vice Chairman & Executive Vice President, UNICCO
Sonus selected DGP Miles Insurance Agency to partner with a broker able to respond to the immediate needs of our rapidly growing organization. David Pietro and his staff have provided us with outstanding service treating each renewal cycle as a new opportunity to present us with the most comprehensive insurance products at the most competitive pricing. While the handling of the day to day needs of our global operation prove challenging, those requirements are addressed immediately and efficiently by DGP Miles Insurance Agency. We highly recommend them without reservation.
Elizabeth McClain, Director of Treasury Services, Sonus Networks
David and his staff have written our insurance for the past five years and I have found their services to be excellent. They are timely in seeking renewal quotes, they have demonstrated to us that they maintain good relationships with the major insurance carriers in the lines we require, and their staff is most responsive to inquiries, requests for certificates and explanations of premiums. I can personally attest to their speedy responses; I have never posed a question or request to their offices that was not answered within a few hours.
Sally C. Stratman, Executive Director, Rubin and Rudman LLP
We have retained and relied on DGP Miles to advise on a variety of risk management services. These include both rates and structures for our insurance allowing us to have effectively outsourced the management of our insurance function with outstanding results. To do so Dave and his team invested a significant amount of time understanding our business and its operations, assessing the areas where real risks had to be managed, identifying where MSL was over insured and under-insured and coached our Treasury group through several renewal cycles.
Albert A. Notini, Executive Vice President, MSL / Manufacturers™ Services

DGP Miles helped us through a Company recapitalization where Marsh was the Risk Manager for the investor group. DGP Miles was more competitive and more timely, both crucial in this type of transaction. Without hesitation, I would recommend Dave Pietro and the staff of this agency for anyone's insurance needs.

Neil Bernanbaum, Chief Development Officer, United Waste Management
It is my pleasure to recommend David Pietro and the DGP-Miles Insurance Agency as a premier risk management services provider. I am a Senior Advisor and Operating Partner at New Mountain Capital. New Mountain is a private equity firm based in New York where we manage approximately $10 billion in capital commitments from institutional investors. We currently own fifteen companies with revenues ranging from $50 million to over $1 billion, as well as a public credit and public equity fund. I have known and worked with Dave Pietro and DGP-Miles for fifteen years across many companies. We have retained and relied on DGP-Miles to advise us on a variety of risk management services. These include both rates and structures for our property and casualty insurance, marine cargo and our Directors & Officers liability insurance programs. We have effectively outsourced the management of our insurance function to DGP-Miles on some of our portfolio companies and the results have been outstanding. Among the most significant of the services DGP-Miles provided was their help and guidance on our casualty and management liability policies. Over the last two years, market premiums for these coverages have increased dramatically due to the hardening market conditions. Dave helped up prepare a formal presentation to our underwriters during the renewal process that highlighted New Mountain’s operating and financial process disciplines. The presentation and data had a real impact. Based on comparative information available for the portfolio company working with DGP-Miles, our premiums per $1 million coverage are less than half of that being paid by others while our coverages are better. We would not have achieved this result without DGP-Miles’ understanding of our business and their creative approach to risk management. Prior to joining NMC in 2007, I retained DGP-Miles in two global publicly-traded companies where I was an operating executive. Dave and his team were able to achieve similar strong results for both companies that were far in excess of what other providers could deliver. As an example, in one of those Dave’s focus and creativity helped us obtain and structure insurance for seventeen factories world-wide in a highly complex environment. I look forward to continue working with Dave Pietro and DGP-Miles in the future and to expanding the scope for work he provides us.
