What is it?
Professional Liability Insurance protects you (and your business) from any allegations of errors, omissions, or negligence committed within the scope of your professional activities. It’ll cover your damages—legal expenses, administrative costs, and court settlements—EVEN if the claims made against you are groundless.
Why do we recommend it?
Given the sensitive and unpredictable nature of paramedicine, mistakes can easily happen, especially in a situation where speed and efficiency can make the difference in saving someone’s life. Working in such a high stakes environment means that you could be susceptible to a potential lawsuit whether you are at fault or not.
We can help. PROLINK has partnered with the Alberta Paramedic Association to protect you from the specific risks you face as a paramedic. Our Professional Liability Insurance program is included with the cost of your APA membership, meets all regulatory requirements set out by the HPA and the Alberta Paramedics College, and will protect you in the event of a claim alleging negligence, errors, omissions, or malpractice.
Policy highlights include:
- Funds for defence costs if you are accused of abuse and found not guilty;
- Legal defence costs for any complaints filed against you to the College of Paramedics;
- Provisions in the event of a breach of confidentiality;
- And more!
