What Risks Do I Face as A Pastoral Counselor That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Pastoral counselors are trained religious figures that use their religious teaching as well as psychological education to help individuals. Ministers, rabbis, priests, imams, or other religious persons can provide therapy to those that wish to use their service. Individuals looking to incorporate their spiritual beliefs into a healing process will often call upon pastoral counselors for guidance. Because of their direct interaction with various clients, pastoral counselors can find themselves at the center of a malpractice claim. The best way for counselors to protect their career, as well as their personal assets, is to have the appropriate form of malpractice insurance.

Why Do I Need Pastoral Counselor Malpractice Insurance?

Liability insurance for pastoral counselors is designed to protect your personal assets or cover your expenses in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit or liability claim. Relying solely on an employer’s pastoral counselor malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. It is important to have separate pastoral counselor liability insurance from your employer because an employer’s policy may focus on their financial liability first, leaving little to no protection for you depending on damages incurred. If named in a lawsuit, individuals could be exposed, resulting in financially devastating legal costs. Our pastoral counselor liability insurance policy protects healthcare professionals for amounts that would otherwise need to be paid as a result of a medical liability claim arising out of a covered medical incident.
