Professional Liability Insurance – Errors and Omissions
Dietitians can benefit from carrying professional liability insurance in order to protect against claims from clients related to the services that they provide, such as bad advice/information. For example, a client accuses a dietitian of making a nutritional recommendation which the client claims caused them harm. Professional liability insurance is also commonly called errors and omissions or E&O for short, as well as malpractice insurance.
General Liability Insurance
Another important type of business insurance for dietitians is general liability insurance. General liability can help dietitians should they be sued for by a client or another third party for accidents like slipping and falling in the dietitians office. As many landlords now require general liability be carried as part of their lease requirements, maintaining a general liability policy may be necessary if renting an office space.
