Professional liability insurance
Project management out of control: You have been contracted by a client to come in and organize a project that has run past its due date and is over budget. You commit to bringing the project to completion. As you dig into the project you realize that the former project manager did not present your client with an accurate view of deliverables and you are facing a scope of work that is twice as long as your original projection. When you present this finding to your client they are angry and accuse you of not doing your due diligence of project review up front before signing the contract. Professional liability insurance protects you against claims of negligence even if you haven't made a mistake.

General liability insurance
Damage to a client's property: As a consultant you are often asked by your clients to purchase insurance as a contract requirement to begin work. This requirement protects you in the event you accidently damage your client's property while working at their office. General liability insurance protects you against third-party claims for property damage.
