What Risks Do I Face as A Podiatric Assistant That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Podiatric assistants work with podiatrists to treat the feet or ankles of patients. Podiatric assistants work to help the podiatrist by performing both clinical and administrative duties. Their work can consist of taking x-rays, aiding during surgery, preparing patients for exams, making impressions of feet or simply sterilizing equipment. Though they work directly under the head podiatrist, assistant podiatrists can find themselves at the center of malpractice claims. The best way for rehabilitation professionals to ensure the safety of their career as well as their personal assets is to have the proper form of malpractice insurance.

Why Do I Need Podiatric Assistant Malpractice Insurance?

Liability insurance for podiatric assistants 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 podiatric assistant malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. It is important to have separate podiatric assistant 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. Our podiatric assistant 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.
