Physicians, counselors, therapists, chiropractors, clergy and other professionals have special requirements for professional liability or medical malpractice insurance. Legal action against professionals has become so commonplace that insurance to protect against the risk of litigation is not only expected, it is in many cases mandated by law or required by contract.
A wide range of professionals, including consultants, brokers, attorneys, general contractors, construction workers, charities and non-profit organization employees and volunteers, should evaluate their insurance strategies to identify any gaps in personal liability coverage. For some, umbrella insurance will provide adequate coverage at a very reasonable price. Others require separate professional liability policies.

After conducting an evaluation of your professional exposure, your agent will compare appropriate malpractice/liability insurance quotes from various companies. In addition to professional liability insurance, the agent will advise you on related matters, such as errors and omissions (E&O) coverage and the limitations of general liability insurance for your organization.
Medical Malpractice insurance is professional liability insurance coverage that specifically covers health care professionals, such as doctors, surgeons, physical therapists, dentists, clinics and other medical facilities. Medical malpractice insurance provides liability coverage for the specific performance of professional services not covered under personal liability or business general liability insurance policies.
