Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)
A Professional Liability Insurance policy protects you against liability or allegations of liability for injury or damages that have resulted from a negligent act, error, omission, or malpractice that has arisen out of your professional capacity as a sonographer.
It protects you from bearing the full cost of defending against a claim made against you by a patient, as well as damages awarded in a civil lawsuit of this type.
Sonography Canada cannot overemphasize the importance of sonographers having their own personal Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) coverage. Your employer's insurance policy may not be sufficient to cover you personally in the event of a claim. If a sonographer is ever involved in a claim, it is strongly recommended that they have coverage for personal legal support to protect their professional reputation and livelihood.
Sonography Canada's PLI policy protects you wherever you work or volunteer in Canada and throughout your full scope of practice as a sonographer.
