Chiropractic Liability Insurance: What the Doctor of Chiropractic Should Know

Like other professional healthcare providers, chiropractors face risks intrinsic to those who work with the public health—risks that should be covered with liability insurance. You simply can't predict whether or not a client of yours will ever walk away with a real or perceived injury for which that client may try to find you liable.

Most insurance programs for chiropractors will provide general and professional, or malpractice, insurance, but you should also know about other aspects of liability insurance, such as entity coverage and occurrence form versus claims made coverage. Knowing all of your options, you can make the best possible decision regarding your chiropractic insurance. Having the correct type of policy can mean the difference between practicing for a few years or decades. Make sure you protect the investment you've made in your professional development by selecting a liability insurance policy that will be there when you need it most.
