Allied Healthcare Professional and
General Liability
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services' Administration on Aging, the number of Americans, age 65 and older, is projected to be 55 million in 2020. As Americans strive to live longer and healthier lives, the allied healthcare industry is booming, particularly in the health, beauty and fitness markets that cater to their lifestyle.

Medical professionals are performing new and non-traditional medical procedures, which increases risks and liabilities. Whether people turn to registered nurses for dermal filler injections or nutritionists for special diet planning or equine-assisted therapy for mental health, complications and mistakes can occur. The financial consequences of these mistakes can be devastating to a business owner.

Anti-aging medical spa
A patient had a reaction to a numbing cream provided by a medspa and which was to be used prior to a laser hair removal treatment. The patient allegedly was not provided proper instruction on the use of the cream and overdosed on the solution, resulting in the patient's death

Chiropractic clinic
A patient receives an adjustment and feels dizzy afterwards, but is sent home. After follow up, the chiropractor learns the patient later had a stroke as a result of a forceful neck adjustment.

Nurse registry
The insured's nurse was placed in a hospital where the nurse was responsible for the care of an elderly patient. While under the nurses' care, the patient allegedly fell from bed resulting in hip and pelvic fractures.
