Professional Liability Insurance vs. General Liability Insurance
Are you covered?
As a business owner, your massage therapy education, training, supplies, and advertising efforts are at the forefront of your mind. Insurance is probably the last thing you want to think about. Since any workspace can turn into an uncontrolled environment and there are many unknown variables out there, it is important to have coverage that can respond to injuries that may occur. Learn about how professional massage liability insurance and general liability can be beneficial for your massage therapy business below.
Massage professional liability insurance
(also known as errors and omissions insurance)
is designed to respond to negligence claims. As a massage therapist, a client could sue you for failure to use a degree of care considered reasonable under a given set of circumstances and you may need to defend yourself in court.
Example: A client sues a massage therapist for allegedly overheating the hot stones for their massage and sustaining serious burns on their body. Depending on the claim, professional liability insurance may cover legal defense costs and give you financial peace of mind.
General Liability Insurance
(also known as business liability insurance)
Unlike professional liability insurance, general liability insurance (also known as business liability insurance) can respond to instances that occur while running your normal business operations.
This type of coverage can help protect your business from claims that come from your business such as:
- Property damage
- Physical injury
- Lawsuit costs
Example: A client trips over an essential oil diffusor cord and breaks their ankle.
