Malpractice Insurance covers your psychology practice from lawsuits where you make mistakes (or patients allege you've made mistakes). Covered lawsuits include claims you practice…
- Made wrong recommendations or diagnoses.
- Offered poor counseling.
- Failed to deliver the treatment a patient expected.
- Was professionally negligent.
Here's a worst-case scenario. A child psychologist's patient commits suicide after years of being bullied. Their parents file a lawsuit against the bullies' families, the school, and the psychologist who treated their child. Often, lawyers will take this wide approach, filing multiple lawsuits.
As doctors responsible for their patients' mental health, psychologists have a tremendous amount of professional liability. Make sure you're covered with Malpractice / Professioal Liability Insurance.
