Why do legal professionals need business insurance?

You might wonder what is legal services insurance for and why get it? Well, business insurance offers you protection from a wide range of unexpected events and accidents, from clients getting injured by tripping over file boxes on the floor to accusations of making mistakes.

Besides, having legal services insurance is worth it because it means that you don’t have to fully pay out of pocket if an accident does occur. With the right law firm insurance coverage, you can focus on practicing law instead of worrying about defending your business.

How legal service liability insurance protects your business

How legal service liability insurance protects your business

Legal firm liability insurance can help cover costs if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being accused of causing an injury or damaging property that doesn’t belong to you. It also can help you if someone says your marketing efforts were misleading or slanderous.

General liability insurance’s broad protection can help cover you from expenses related to accidental damage to someone’s property or an injury to someone who is not an employee.

For example, if an elderly client trips on a rug in your office, hits their head and wants you to pay for their ER visit. General liability can help pay for their medical expenses up to your policy limit

Professional liability insurance (also known as errors and omissions) can help cover you for cases where you are accused of making a professional error, whether that’s true or not. For instance, if a client sues you for making a mistake in legal paperwork that led to them losing a significant deal, law firm professional liability insurance will help pay for costs to defend your business.

You may already know that many legal professionals need to hold malpractice insurance, which is a specialized type of professional liability coverage. While they both help cover business owners if they make a professional mistake, not all professional liability insurance is necessarily malpractice insurance.

Other important business insurance coverage for law firms and legal professionals

Liability insurance is a good place to start, but you can also customize your legal services insurance plans to protect your employees and your property.
We typically recommend:
Workers' Compensation Insurance
Workers’ Compensation for legal professionals

Workplace injuries happen more frequently than you might think. Workers’ comp makes those situations easier by helping to pay for medical bills for injuries and illnesses that happen to you or your employees while on the job. Workers’ comp can also help to cover lost wages while recuperating from tripping over a computer cord in your office.

This coverage is required for businesses with employees in every state except Texas.

Learn more about workers’ comp.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial Property insurance for legal services businesses

Attorneys, legal assistants, and notary business owners who own or rent physical spaces will need property insurance to help protect business equipment, inventory and furniture. If your business property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe or fire, property insurance can help with replacement costs or repairs.

Customer reviews

I am so excited
I am totally excited about my new insurance for my small business. I am happy that the price was in a range that I can afford, the terms were easy to understand and it was so simple to purchase my first policy. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Cruzella J.
Easiest insurance purchase – EVER!
I was looking around trying to compare insurance and I am so lucky I found NEXT. I was able to compare levels of coverage, and all the options, without pressure from a salesperson or time limits. I was able to check out prices and it was more coverage for less than the “traditional” company I looked at.
Michael W.
Happy small business owner!
I needed liability insurance for my new small business brick & mortar location. I got the run around from another company, but NEXT provided a competitive insurance quote in a timely manner. I now have the insurance that I need and it was stress-free!

Frequently asked questions about legal services insurance

Does a lawyer need professional liability insurance?

The short answer: it depends on where you practice law. There is no across-the-board regulation requiring lawyers in the U.S. to have liability insurance. Some states have no requirements; others have requirements or certain coverage limits dependent on business structure or the kind of work done. Although it may not be mandated by state, professional liability or malpractice insurance is prudent to have. Not only does professional liability coverage protect lawyers from claims of professional mistakes, it also helps legitimize your business by helping build trust and credibility with clients.

Do law firms need property insurance?

Most likely, yes. Commercial property coverage helps protect the brick-and-mortar location of your law firm or law office regardless if you lease or own the property. It also covers physical items you need to operate your legal business: documents and files, business equipment like computers and furniture.

What do I need to get an insurance quote online?

We keep it simple and straightforward so you can find the coverage that’s right for you within a few minutes. When you start a quote for insurance, we’ll ask you a few basic questions about your business, including: the kind of services you provide, the location of your office or where you plan to work, how many people you employ and how much you pay them and the number and type of vehicles you use for work.
