Why is professional liability insurance important?

Professional liability insurance is important because it protects you from financial loss in the event of a malpractice lawsuit. Dental malpractice settlements and judgements can be for hundreds of thousands of dollars. For most people, recovering from a financial blow of this magnitude without insurance would be devastating.
