Clinical Social Worker Malpractice Insurance

The essentials and benefits of having professional malpractice insurance

What is Clinical Social Worker Malpractice Insurance?

Professional malpractice insurance for clinical social workers offers liability protection against claims associated with mistakes or negligence (whether true or false) that result in bodily injury, medical expenses or even claims of mental anguish or pain and suffering. Malpractice insurance for clinical social workers is important as it allows providers to carry out their duties without fear of litigation.

What Risks Do I Face as a Clinical Social Worker That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Clinical social work is a specialty practice area of social work which focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of mental or behavioral disturbances. Clinical social workers work with individuals or families of all ages. Often, clinical social workers will hold therapy sessions to help treat their patients. Due to their direct interaction with their clients, as well as their solution treatments, clinical social workers can find themselves at the center of a malpractice claim. The best way for behavioral professionals to protect their career, as well as their personal assets, is to have the appropriate form of malpractice insurance.

Why Do I Need Clinical Social Worker Liability Insurance?

Relying solely on an employer’s clinical social worker malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. It is important to have separate clinical social worker 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. The best protection for any allegation against your professional services is having reliable clinical social worker liability insurance at a reasonable cost. CM&F’S liability insurance for clinical social workers is designed to protect personal assets and cover legal expenses in the event of a malpractice lawsuit. This insurance covers amounts that you would otherwise be legally obligated to pay as a result of a professional liability claim arising out of a covered medical incident, whether the accusations are proven true or not.
