Who needs legal service liability insurance?

The world is growing more complex and so are your clients’ demands. Because they rely on your expertise, it’s imperative that you have adequate insurance in place. Liability insurance can protect you from omissions, negligence, allegations, mistakes, and accidents. 

Legal service liability insurance can cover the following risks:

  • Cyber breaches or client data that is lost or stolen. 
  • A bodily injury lawsuit if a client falls on your property and sues you for medical expenses.

Mitigating risks can help protect your business reputation. This is especially important if you're considering a future business expansion. When you're ready to scale, Hiscox has several types of specialized insurance products available.

General Liability Insurance for for legal service businesses

Another name for General Liability is Commercial General Liability (CGL). A CGL protects your business from financial losses that might result from a lawsuit by someone alleging property damage or bodily injury. 

For example, if a client comes to your office for a consultation and slips and falls, breaking a bone, your general liability policy could protect you. It could cover the client’s medical costs and lost wages. Or, if you accidentally damage a client’s property, your CGL policy could pay for repair or replacement. 

At Hiscox, we know it's important that you protect your clients as well as your practice. And, with so many types of lawsuits, Hiscox is with you every step of the way. Learn more about how much general liability insurance costs.
