Professional liability insurance is a must for any business owner, especially if you are in the service industry. If you’re operating a restaurant, bar or other establishment that serves alcohol, then you need to make sure your business is protected from liability claims.
Fortunately for owners of LLCs, professional liability coverage can be easily obtained through an insurance policy. Here are some reasons why professional liability coverage is so important:
Professional liability protection is a must.
While it may be tempting to try to save money by not having professional liability insurance, you’re actually better off doing the opposite. Professional liability protection is a must for your business.
- If you don’t have professional liability insurance and are sued in court, you could end up paying out of pocket costs that could exceed $100,000.
- A judge will typically award damages against anyone who has been injured by another person or company if they believe that person or company had no good reason for causing harm (i.e., negligence). You’ll want to make sure that any potential clients know about their legal rights before hiring them as well!
- If there’s ever an accident involving one of your employees—whether it be on the job or not—you’ll want protection from lawsuits filed against them personally instead of just their employer group since this type of lawsuit can sometimes last years before being resolved completely.”
You don’t want to pay the hard costs of claims out of pocket.
When you run your business, it’s important to be prepared for the unexpected. If a claim arises and your insurance doesn’t cover it, you could end up paying out of pocket—and that’s not something any business owner can afford.
You don’t want to pay the hard costs of claims out of pocket because they can quickly add up: legal fees, settlement costs and lost productivity while waiting for case resolution (or even worse). You also need protection against claims in order to protect your assets and keep them intact during any legal proceedings.
Professional liability insurance can cover court fees and legal expenses.
- If you are sued, it is important to have a lawyer. Lawyers can be expensive and you need to make sure that your insurance covers some of the costs.
- If you are sued, it is important to have a good lawyer. Even if your business doesn’t have insurance coverage and is at risk of losing money due to an accident or lawsuit, having an experienced attorney on your team will help keep the situation under control.
Filing a claim against your business won’t necessarily prevent you from being sued.
In many cases, filing a claim against your business won’t necessarily prevent you from being sued. It is not if something will go wrong, but when.

What is a professional liability policy?
A Professional Liability Policy (PLP) is a type of insurance that covers you and your business in the event that someone sues your company. It’s important to have this kind of coverage because no one can predict exactly what will happen, but they can prepare for the worst. If something goes wrong, having this type of coverage will allow you to pay for damages without worrying about financial ruin or having your business shut down due to an accident.
