  Liability Insurance

Liability insurance could protect you and/or your business from another person or business's claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, financial harm, and damage to property.

Professional Liability, also known as malpractice insurance, protects you and your business for loss or expense resulting from claims of professional errors, mistakes, or failure to perform professional duties committed or alleged to have been committed by the insured in his or her professional activities.

General Liability is a form of insurance designed to protect practitioners from liability exposures arising out of accidents occurring on the premises, such as if a visitor slips and falls.
