Our optometrists, chiropractors and occupational therapists, as well as a huge range of other allied health workers, spend their lives caring for others. Which is why it’s essential their lives are also properly protected.
One of the best ways to protect yourself is with professional indemnity insurance. This type of policy provides cover for people who risk legal action as a result of carrying out their professional duties.
It means in the event policyholders are sued for professional negligence, they are covered for their legal costs and for any damages awarded as a result of the claim – no matter whether it’s proven or not.
Professional indemnity insurance gives people in the health or alternative therapy professions, and their families, peace of mind that their assets are safe if they do face legal action as a result of their work.
It’s an especially important insurance for people working in the health industries, who are frequently exposed to potential legal action. For instance, each day, practitioners risk patients suffering an injury while under their care, or even face the possibility of conflicts of interest arising.
If you’re working in the allied health industries, the most convenient way to take out professional indemnity cover is through BizCover, a central portal where you can find and compare policies from Australia’s most trusted insurers, for free. It only takes two minutes to generate a list of policy options and quotes so you can find the right cover at the right price.
