Protect Yourself..Professional Liability Insurance

Please follow and like us:

Professional Liability

Whatever your profession, protecting yourself with professional liability insurance is not just a smart thing to do, but a necessity in today’s litigious society.  You have worked hard and put in years of education and work to get where you are in your career.  Without the right coverage for potential negligence suits, you could lose everything you have worked so hard to achieve.

What It Covers

General liability insurance can protect you from a wide variety of claims against you and your business, but will not protect you from the type of lawsuit that can result from the simple errors we are all capable of making.

Nor will it protect you from claims made against you that are unfounded.  Remember that even if there is no truth to the accusations against you, you can still find yourself in court defending yourself and your professional reputation against them at a very high cost to you.

Those who provide a service or advice, or in any other way use their knowledge and experience to help others need professional liability insurance.  This includes things like errors and omissions insurance and malpractice insurance, both of which are types of professional liability.

The similarity is that the types of lawsuits brought against professionals are usually based on actions, advice, or services that may not have caused property damage or direct injury but nonetheless can in some way be shown to be a result of the negligence of the professional.

Don’t Take Chances

You do your best to provide good advice, to make sure that everything you do and offers to your clients is as accurate and helpful as possible, but everyone makes mistakes.  And even when you didn’t make a mistake, all it takes is someone who is unhappy with the outcome to turn on you and put the blame at your feet.  These lawsuits can cost professionals incredible amounts of money, even if you win.  Having to pay out on such a lawsuit can easily bankrupt even the most well-off professional.

Professional liability insurance provides you with the means to defend your good name in court against accusations as well as to pay out on settlements when you are found to be negligent.

Without it, you could find yourself not only out a lot of money, but your reputation could be on the line because you are unable to fight an unfounded lawsuit.  Don’t take chances; protect everything you have worked so hard for with the right professional liability policy for your industry.

    I’ve never considered any type of insurance for my business. I’m a one man team right now, but I guess that still doesn’t mean I’m protected in case I happen to mess up somewhere.

    1. Mrs. Mapp says:

      Correct, it’s better to get insured as a one-man team because your rate can go down the longer you have it and have no claims. Thanks for reading.

    Choosing the right investment for your future while still younger is the wise decision especially for us millennials. Better start early.

    1. Mrs. Mapp says:

      Having Professional Liability Insurance just put your business ahead of the curve instead of behind.

  3. I really need to get a quote on this. I haven’t done it yet and I know I need to. Thank you for the explanation.
