Why do Chiropractors need insurance?
As a chiropractor, you’re used to treating pains and aches. However, if your own practice was to suffer an unfortunate incident like a fire, or if a client sued you for providing incorrect advice, the financial headache from this wouldn’t be as easy for you to handle.
Like all small businesses, there are risks in the operation of your business. Some incidents could have enough financial strain to completely bring your practice to a stop. Insurance that is customised for the common risks in your industry should be a key consideration when deciding how to protect your business.
You have a 'hands-on' career, literally. And while you’re busy helping your patients with their pain, one unhappy client could be all it takes to break the back of your business’s financial livelihood. This is where Chiropractors’ insurance can step in and help safeguard your financial stability if you do experience such events.

Professional Indemnity Insurance is a requirement under the Chiropractic Board of Australia.
Public Liability Insurance helps protect your business against liability for third-party personal injury or property damage arising out of your business activities. For example, if a client or visitor was to slip and fall while on your business premises, you would look to this policy to cover the claim.
While these events may seem rare, if they do occur, the financial impacts can be very significant. As a Chiropractor your profession involves significant interaction with clients, therefore Public Liability is a crucial cover to consider for your business, whether that’s at your office, out in public, or at your clients’ homes.2
A key part of this policy is Business Interruption, which can provide protection for lost revenue in the event your business is unable to operate as usual due to an insured peril.
Business Insurance is made up of a number of cover sections, and you can choose the sections that relate to your business. Cover is also available for damage to money (if you keep cash on premises), portable contents such as mobile phones and laptops, and Public Liability.2
As a Chiropractor, you may store valuable client data (such as personal details, bank account details, health records). When this type of personal information is kept digitally in your care, custody or control, it is important to consider the risks of data and security breaches. Cyber insurance may be worth considering when protecting your business against these risks.2
Cyber insurance has now become one of the essential products a business in the health industry should consider.
Product liability insurance helps protect your business against financial liability for third party injury or damage caused by products sold or supplied through your business.
Public and Products Liability policies can cover legal defence and court costs, assisting your business with the financial setbacks of defending a claim.2

Patients and members of the public could continually be dropping in and out of your practice. One of these people could be playing on their phone, and not paying attention to the world around them. While their head is buried in the fictional world of their favourite game they could trip over a chair in your waiting room, sending them toppling over; losing their game, breaking their phone and twisting their ankle. They could make a claim that you were at fault and that you’re liable. Chiropractors Liability Insurance provides cover for legal liabilities if a member of the public makes a claim that they were injured, or damage was caused to their property because of your business dealings or on your premises.2
