We offer a full suite of services to our architect clients, including employee benefits, commercial insurance, and risk management. Through our partnership with AIA Oregon, we’ve successfully launched two exclusive association programs for Employee Benefits and Professional Liability.
Through the Association Healthcare Plan* AIA Oregon members have exclusive access to Fortune 500-style employee benefits.
*Oregon state requires at least one other employee aside from the proprietor to qualify for an AHC plan, and additionally employers must cover at least 50% of the employee only premium cost.
AIA Oregon members have exclusive access to a competitive Professional Liability program.
In your field, you are expected to provide quality services and produce error-free work on a daily basis. Such precision is obviously important in such a highly skilled industry, but despite your best intentions, mistakes or misjudgments are bound to occur.
Unfortunately, when they do, even the smallest error can have serious consequences. Clients could sue you or your company, and in addition to paying to defend yourself in court, you would also be responsible for potentially extensive restitution costs if found at fault. If you fail to protect yourself against this liability, the consequences for your business could be financially devastating.
A professional liability policy will cover the cost of defending you or your company in court, along with any monetary damages awarded to the claimant due to an error or omission on your part.
These policies are known as “claims-made” policies. This means that coverage is triggered when a claim is filed and you report it to the insurance company, since it is often hard to identify when the alleged error or omission originally occurred. Your work will be covered dating back to the earliest date of your continuous professional liability coverage. Policies typically have a one-year term, with an annual premium and deductibles on a per-claim basis.
We offer our architect clients a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions.
