Why do doctors need insurance?

Running your own medical practice comes with a risk of malpractice claims and other liabilities. Business insurance can help mitigate the costs and uncertainty of patient lawsuits, damaged equipment, staff accidents, and data breaches. Some policies, like workers' comp, may be required by law.
