Why do speech therapists need insurance?

Speech therapists work directly with clients, which makes you especially vulnerable to third-party accidents and lawsuits. Business insurance covers costs and provides peace of mind in the event of a slip-and-fall injury or a claim that therapy worsened a patient’s stuttering. Some policies, such as workers' compensation, may be required by law.
