Social Work Malpractice

Individuals, partnerships and corporations.

Social work is a rewarding career, but like many professions, it has its risks in today's litigious society. In recent years, social workers, like other professionals, have increasingly been subject to malpractice suits. Malpractice claims must be defended, even when they are groundless or fraudulent, and the cost of defending yourself for such a suit can be extremely expensive.

Consequently, social work malpractice insurance is no longer just an option for social workers, it's a necessity. Even if you do not serve clients directly, you still have a degree of liability risk. Obtain your own insurance rather than rely on someone else. After all, it's your career and your ability to continue practicing professional social work that's on the line.

If you don't currently have professional liability insurance, consider adding that protection. Our program administrator, CPH and Associates, is able to handle your application immediately.
