Students Professional Liability Insurance

Protect Your Finances and the Start of Your Career

Most students cannot afford to defend themselves in court if there's a claim against their professional services. Student Liability Insurance (also called Student Malpractice Insurance) can help protect your finances and keep your career on track. Not having professional liability insurance can put your finances and everything you've been working so hard for at risk. Just one mistake (or perceived mistake) can have serious consequences on your future — leading to claims against your services and possibly costing you thousands in court. This added liability means you need to protect your interests.

Experienced Legal Support

If you are faced with a malpractice claim against your services, we will help you each step of the way. We will provide you with your own attorney and cover your court costs and settlements. You can receive up to $3,000,000 in coverage each year — $1,000,000 per incident*.

Professional Liability Insurance protects you against covered claims arising from real or alleged errors or omissions, including negligence, in the course of your professional duties. Remember, legal defense and settlement costs are paid in addition to your limits of liability.

In the event of a lawsuit, your own Professional Liability Insurance policy would:

  • Provide you with your own attorney
  • Pay all reasonable costs incurred in the defense or investigation of a covered claim
  • Pay you for lost wages
  • Provide reimbursement if licensing board issues were involved
  • Pay court costs and settlements in addition to the limits of liability
