Do You Need Professional Liability Insurance
Are you self-employed? Do you need business general liability, professional liability, or both? General liability is for coverage if you have a physical location, marketplace, or somewhere a customer or client could potentially be hurt. Professional Liability Insurance is to cover a loss from a mistake you make. Perhaps your mistake has hurt a client financially, or they were unsatisfied with your product or results. Having one coverage does not mean you do not need the other.
A contractor who misses a deadline, or has an accident not covered under general liability must have professional liability to protect himself and his business. Even a simple side business may need professional liability. A fitness professional needs protection from a lawsuit that could occur from an injured client. A photographer who misses the appointment or event, has technical difficulties or destroyed images may be open for a claim. Hairstylists, home health-based professionals, the list is endless. Basically, if you provide a service, you need protection.
Professional liability will help cover the cost of legal fees associated with a civil lawsuit, as well as any money you have to pay your client as part of the lawsuit or a settlement, for a covered claim. No matter what the size of your business is, you need to look into business insurance protection. Alliance 1099 can help.
