Allegations of negligence, professional misconduct, and breach of confidentiality are examples of types of claims covered by a professional liability insurance policy.
Similarly, claims of improper restraint are a risk factor many behavioral professionals face. When helping individuals with behavioral issues, their risk of an outburst leading to attempted use of force, and how you respond to that force may someday be questioned.

Professional liability insurance for allied health providers, protects you from claims a client might make against you regarding the services you provide. These claims and allegations would not only be financially damaging, they could cost you your license or certification.
