Why do podiatrists need insurance?

Podiatry practices face numerous risks. A delivery person could slip at your office, or a patient might file a lawsuit if their plantar fasciitis worsens. Podiatrist insurance covers a wide scope of losses and liabilities that could have a negative impact on the success of a small practice. It also helps you comply with state laws and other requirements.
