Professionals are the heart of human and social service organizations. They provide services and advice that require specialized education, judgment and skill.

Great American’s Professional Liability Policy provides protection for a wide array of professionals including therapists, counselors, nurses, teachers, clergy and volunteer professionals.

Why Do You Need Professional Liability Coverage?

Rendering a Service
An employed nurse administered a prescribed medication to a client in the detox facility at the direction of a physician. The client fainted shortly after taking the medication and hit his head. Although the nurse followed procedure, the client later sued for his injuries. Great American’s Professional Liability Policy afforded protection for the investigation, defense, and monetary compensation awarded to the claimant.

Failure to Render a service
A client sustained a chronic shoulder injury after several training sessions. He sued his athletic trainer and the gym for neglecting to tell him how to do an exercise properly. After speaking with their designated claims staff, the gym felt protected by their Great American Professional Liability Policy, which included coverage for failure to instruct.
