Behavioral health malpractice insurance, also known as behavioral liability insurance, is financial protection designed to cover judgements, settlements, along with legal expenses of behavioral therapy professionals in the case of a malpractice lawsuit. In the event of a malpractice claim, whether the accusation is true or not, behavioral professionals could be expected to pay large amounts in judgment, settlement or legal fees. The best protection against a financially damaging lawsuit and high legal fees is medical malpractice insurance.

IN YOUR OWN NAME, will protect you, your family and your career, as well as your hard-earned personal assets.

Behavioral health professionals work with patients in a variety of ways. Many are responsible for working with or treating patients directly which means that they are at risk of being named in a malpractice suit if something should go wrong. Behavioral professionals often interact with patients more than any other medical professionals in a clinical or office type setting – so, with that much direct exposure to patients, behavioral professionals need to be able to properly perform their duties without the constant fear of potential litigation.
