Why would an individual practitioner require insurance cover?
As an individual practitioner or business owner, you could be held legally liable for loss or damage to other people’s property, injury, harm or financial loss alleged to have been caused to your clients, patients or other parties. As such you may require a Professional Liability insurance policy.
Balens have devised a specialist insurance package that includes Professional Liability and Malpractice with a Legal Protection policy.
Our bespoke policy wordings are, in our opinion, one of the widest available on the market. We can cover over 3,500 different therapies/activities under the policy subject to qualification.
Balens Ltd and Balens Europe BV have a combined client base of over 100,000 in the UK and Europe, offering our bespoke policy for individuals and Members of Associations or Professional Bodies alike. We are able to offer the following in the UK:
