Mental health professional malpractice insurance, also known as professional liability insurance, is financial protection designed to cover judgements, settlements, along with legal expenses in the case of a malpractice lawsuit. In the event of a malpractice claim, whether the accusation is true or not, mental health professionals could be expected to pay large amounts in judgement, settlement or legal fees. The best protection against a financially damaging lawsuit and high legal fees is medical malpractice insurance. As a mental health professional, your employer’s group liability policy may prioritize their interests over yours. Owning your own individual malpractice insurance policy, IN YOUR OWN NAME, will protect you, your family and your career, as well as your hard-earned personal assets.
Mental health professionals work extensively with individuals in need of some sort of help, whether that be therapy or counseling. If an accident or mistake were to occur during an interaction with a client, mental health professionals could find themselves at the center of a malpractice claim. Whether they are at fault or not, individuals could be responsible for large legal or settlement fees. The best form of protection against harmful allegations is to have the appropriate form of malpractice insurance coverage.
