Here’s an example of a Miscellaneous Professional Liability claim:
A consulting firm was hired by a credit-card company to send pre-approved credit card applications to two groups. One group had an excellent credit history and was to be offered low interest, high-limit credit. The other group had a poor credit history and was to be offered high interest, low-limit credit. The firm sent the “excellent credit” applications to the group with a poor credit history and the response to the mailing was immense. The credit card company sued the firm for negligence over the error. The firm incurred defense and settlement costs of more than $500,000.
