We've Got You Covered with Coverage You Need
As a lawyer you must know the court system, but it’s hard to defend yourself when a former client is unhappy. Legal advice can turn into malpractice in the blink of an eye, along with employees who use their own cars to drive back and forth for cases. So many issues need to be covered and there are several policies that can be bundled to ensure your complete safety.
Lost a case? Professional Liability insurance (attorney malpractice insurance) provides an extra protection in the event that a client is unhappy with the results. The insurance will protect your law firm from the costs of paying for a defense attorney, and the costs related to the reason why your client is unhappy or other negligence claims made by the client.
Prevent slip and fall claims and other incidents that could lead to your business being liable by carrying General Liability insurance. The insurance is designed to protect your law firm from the liability against property damage, bodily injury or advertising mistakes.
Most lawyers correspond with clients via email, risking a data breach that could potentially leak customer information online. You face hefty fines and expensive legal settlements that may damage to your reputation. Cyber Liability insurance protects your business from online threats, paying for the expenses relating to the data breach, legal counsel, public relations expenses and other costs.
Lawyers work in the office for long hours so computer-related concerns like neck strain, eye-strain and carpal tunnel syndrome are common. So, make sure your business is protected. Workers' Compensation is a state-mandated insurance in which the employee is compensated with medical and rehabilitation benefits including lost income when it is proven that they got sick or injured on the job.
Business Owners Policy
Malpractice insurance for lawyers won't be complete without Business Owner's Policy (BOP) as this insurance is designed to protect your business's physical and financial assets. The insurance offers protection from major property and liability risks while offering savings from purchasing them separately.
Hired & Non-Owned Auto
Hired and Non-Owned Auto insures the vehicle that has been hired by your business for purposes related to businesses. The insurance also protects the passengers inside the vehicle. This policy is also applicable employees using cars that are not theirs to carry out business-related tasks.
