The importance of Professional Liability insurance for health care professionals
As a health care professional, you take providing quality care seriously. Unfortunately, no matter how thoroughly trained you are or how successful your treatments may be, as a health care provider the threat of being sued is real.
Even just one claim against you—an allegation of misconduct during a session or an undesired result from one of your treatments—can be detrimental to your career and cost thousands of dollars to defend, even if you’re not at fault.
Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is tailored exclusively for health care professionals. It covers defense costs and judgments or settlements that result from a claim against you, plus pays you for lost wages while defending a claim.

Why health care professionals need personal coverage
Regardless of where you work—a hospital, clinic, private organization or your own practice—Professional Liability insurance protects you for the work you do. It covers the cost of legal fees to defend you, and judgments or settlements as a result of claims and lawsuits against you.
And while your employer may cover you for your liabilities, it’s likely limited coverage that doesn’t provide full protection for your needs. With your own Professional Liability policy from Lockton Affinity Health, you can ensure continuous protection at the level of coverage you require.
