I am working on a hold harmless for policy holders to sign along with the application. What E & O lawsuits are you seeing so I might include them in the document? Thanks!

I would have an attorney draft this.

That said, I seriously doubt it would have any validity. You are a professional holding yourself out as such and giving professional service and advice. I can't see a court upholding any attempt to make your client waive the ability to hold you accountable for your actions as such.

If this worked, there would be no such thing as a malpractice suit. You'd have a hold harmless agreement as part of the paperwork with any doctor, dentist, attorney, hospital, etc.

You can pay the premium or you can own the loss.

Correct. As the saying goes, "you can't contract out of negligence".
