Why do physical therapists need business insurance?

Physical therapists combat injuries with exercise, but accidents are bound to happen. Physical therapy clinics and solo practitioners need to be prepared for malpractice suits, injuries – even cyberattacks. Business insurance covers unexpected costs so you can focus on your work. Some policies may be required by state laws or the terms of a commercial lease.
