Why do occupational therapists need business insurance?

Even in the safest therapy practice, accidents happen. A patient with a disability could slip in your office, or claim that your advice worsened their condition. Occupational therapist insurance gives you peace of mind and can help pay for legal fees, medical payments, and costly repairs.
