The Professional Liability insurance shelters personal assets from any customer liability. The OAC is similar to Worker’s Compensation, but is designed to cover independent contractors. OAC does cover any medical assistance/rehabilitation if injured while doing work on a YellowBird Job. In addition to those policies, YellowBird also holds a General Liability policy, Cyber Insurance, and an Executive/Officers policy.
