Public Liability and Product Liability
Public and Product Liability Insurance covers Allied Health Professionals for their legal liability in the event of personal injury or damage to property of others during the course of normal business operations or as a result of a product defect.
If your business/practice requires your customers or members of the public to visit your home or business, or if you visit their premises, you should seriously consider taking out public liability insurance for your protection.
A yoga instructor hired premises in a busy centre to run a studio. From the time of occupation, she complained to the landlord about the air conditioning in the premises. Despite numerous complaints and heated discussions, nothing was ever rectified by the landlord. The yoga instructor then left the premises prematurely and she left a note on the door explaining that she had moved premises and what she thought of the landlord. She followed this up with an interview in a local newspaper whilst promoting her new location. The landlord sued the yoga instructor for defamation. The professional indemnity policy responded and paid for significant legal costs (equivalent to one years revenue) before the matter went away.
