Specialist Business Insurance for Therapists
Our Therapist Insurance provides Public Liability and Professional Liability, as known as Medical Malpractice, as standard. This means that should you be sued for injury or damage caused to a third party or their property, you would be covered.
Professional Indemnity is also included in your policy to cover you in the event that you are sued for any negligent advice you may be deemed to have given.
You will have the option to protect any business equipment that you own to carry out your treatments and activities. This optional benefit can be included to your policy and will protect any equipment valued between £500 to £5,000.
While many therapy treatments are low risk, having specialist insurance for therapists in place in case a claim does arise can save huge sums of money.
