Tailored Insurance for Podiatrists
Podiatrists insurance includes both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability in the one policy.
Why do Podiatrists need Professional Indemnity insurance?
As a Podiatrist, you are a foot health expert, and you diagnose, treat and rehabilitate your patients. Patients may come to you with all sorts of different foot problems, and you do your best to help them. There is a risk that a patient may not feel your treatment helped them, or made a pre-existing condition worse, making a claim against you and landing you in court.
Podiatrist Indemnity insurance is designed to protect you if something goes wrong while you’re treating a patient, it includes cover against a wide range of risks like claims of professional negligence.2
Mandatory insurance for Podiatrists
If you're practising, you need Professional Indemnity insurance arrangements in place that meet the Podiatry Board of Australia standard.3
Why do Podiatrists need Public Liability insurance?
Members of the public could be entering your premises hourly, and there's a risk that they could hurt themselves or damage their belongings. Let's say a delivery person enters your premises, they trip on a mat falling face first, hitting their head and smashing other deliveries in the process. The delivery person could make a claim against your business and you could be found legally liable.
Podiatrists 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
