Why Do You Need Cosmetology Insurance

While every effort is made to practice safety, accidents can still happen. It is imperative that your cosmetology liability insurance provides the two most important kinds of coverage: professional and general liability.

Complete Career Protection

As a working cosmetologist, you get up close and personal with your clients on a regular basis. Whether your primary skill is providing aesthetic support or creative skills, there is a reason you need cosmetology insurance. You strive to make your clients look and feel their best. Doing so is not only rewarding, but it also means repeat customers and positive word of mouth marketing about your skills as a cosmetologist. However, no matter how much effort you put into pampering and serving your clients so well, it is important to remember the basic black and white facts of business strategy and even the law when you become a professional cosmetologist.

In other words, you may be the best cosmetologist in your whole region, but if you do not have certain fundamental pieces in place for your career and your business, then you are building your business without a stable foundation. A strong foundation for a successful cosmetologist should include liability coverage. In fact, obtaining cosmetologist liability insurance may also be required by law.

The main reason insurance is so crucial is because you really never know when an accident might take place that results in a legal claim against you from one of your clients or another person who somehow suffered harm in association with your business. You can think of cosmetologist insurance as your safety net, there to catch you in case any such legal claim ever becomes a reality.

If you are wondering why you might need the safety net of cosmetology liability insurance, the reason comes in the form of dollars and cents. Legal claims of damage or injury can be quite expensive to settle, and without cosmetologist liability insurance, you will need to reach into your own pockets to pay out possible claims.

Accident Lawsuits Coverage: General Liability Insurance

There are three main areas of accident or injury that your insurance program should be designed to cover. The first is called general liability, and it refers to situations where a client or other person slips, trips, falls or has some other kind of accident on the property of your cosmetology business.

For example, if there is a small puddle of water near the washing station, and your client slips on it and ends up hitting her head or breaking her wrist, then you may find yourself facing a legal claim to pay for these damages. In scenarios such as this one, the general liability portion of your cosmetologist liability insurance would be called upon to cover the legal expenses.

Protect Yourself Against Claims: Professional Liability Insurance

The other two types of accident or injury that your cosmetology insurance should be designed to cover pertain to damage caused by either you or some kind of product used during the cosmetology appointment. These aspects of your coverage are referred to as malpractice and product liability.

As an example, if you accidentally burned someone with a hot tool during her appointment, she may make a claim of malpractice, which means she believes the burn occurred due to a lack of skill or competence on your part as the cosmetologist. This is why cosmetologist insurance exists in the first place. Much like automobile insurance, it is there to cover you when an accident—or an unexpected claim—takes place.
