You're good at what you do, you're careful, and you believe in the innate goodness in people. Because of this, you believe you don't need individual professional liability protection. Unfortunately, in these litigious times, the chances of you getting sued are increasing.

Why do I need coverage?
In this series of videos, attorney for healthcare professionals, Edie Brous, R.N., Esq., provides her insights into the value of having your own individual professional liability insurance policy.
Employer provided coverage may not adequately protect you.
Often, an employer's policy is designed to protect their interests first. With your own professional liability insurance policy, you will have the benefit of representation that is focused on your interests first.
Through HPSO, you're covered with more than professional liability protection.
You get up to $1,000,000 each claim, up to $3,000,000 aggregate professional liability coverage plus many value-added coverage features included in the policy. Among them-
Disciplinary Defense Coverage. Most employers, by and large, do not provide this in their plan. If your employer, or a client complains about you to the Board responsible for defining the standards of practice for your license or certifying body, accreditation or certification, it can result in hearings and a trial. Even if the complaint is dismissed, you could still be left with hefty attorney fees.
Personal Injury Protection. This feature covers you, up to the applicable limits of liability, from charges or slander, libel, assault and battery, privacy violation and other alleged personal injuries committed in the conduct of your professional services.
