Professional Liability Insurance for Educators

Teaching and research professors face the risk of liability lawsuits from research rivals, other faculty members – even students. If you’re relying on your employer’s professional liability insurance to offer you complete protection, you may be unknowingly leaving your career – and your personal finances – exposed.

Why You Need Your Own Professional Liability Insurance

Consider the likely gaps in your employer’s professional liability insurance:

  • Claims-made insurance that doesn’t cover suits filed after you have terminated your employment
  • Policy limits that may not be high enough to protect you and all your co-workers
  • Coverage that may not be included for lost wage reimbursement, licensing board hearing reimbursement and defense costs
  • Coverage that likely doesn’t extend outside of the workplace, such as when you engage in volunteer or part-time work

Check out the Coverage Details tab to learn how a personal professional liability plan from proliability can cover these gaps with superior coverage at an affordable rate.
