Professional liability insurance is sometimes referred to as "malpractice" insurance. In general, it covers negligent acts or omissions by persons who hold licenses to eng…age in certain types of occupations, sich as physicians, attorneys. accountants, etc. It is not unlike liability insurance in general, in that it is intended to provide a source of recovery for a person who sustained financial loss due to the fault of the insured. However, the negligence in the case of this kind of insurance has to come within the ambit of the professional services. Again, like other liability insurance, in addition to providing a source of recovery to the harmed, or allegedly harmed party, the insurance affords a defence to the insured. This means that the insurer hires an attorney to defend the insured, pays the attorney, pays attending court costs, and related expenses. There may be limits and conditions to the amount payable, but these are the basics.
