What is Professional Liability?
Professional liability insurance protects you against liability or allegations for injuries or damages to a third party (such as a client) that have resulted from a negligent act, error, omission, or malpractice that has arisen out of your professional capacity as a lactation consultant.
Your coverage insures payment of both compensatory damages and legal costs associated with a claim. Coverage is written on a claims-made basis.
What is Commercial General Liability?
Commercial General Liability insurance (CGL) provides coverage to protect against claims arising from injury or property damage that you (or your business) may cause to another person as a result of your operations and/or premises (for example, a client may slip and fall on a wet floor and injure themselves).
This coverage is recommended for CLCA members who own or operate clinics. Coverage is also recommended for independent practitioners who contract out their services or bill under their business name. Find out more here.
