Help Veterinarians Find Better Coverage

The death of a pet is a distressing time for a family. And if death or debilitating injury to a pet results from a veterinarian’s mistake, the grieving owner has reason to sue.

The resulting judgement may only involve the replacement cost of the animal—a negligible sum, especially if the pet is older. On the other hand, service animals can include the cost of training, which can amount to tens of thousands of dollars.

These suits require a vet to shell out for their defense or simply settle. Some states now allow adding mental distress and loss of companionship to the list of damages—which can get spotty depending on your state.

To help protect veterinarians, Travelers offers a veterinarians professional liability coverage as one of the popular options under its Office Pac - Travelers Select business owners policy product.

Other coverage options include:

  • Accountants endorsement
  • Lawyers endorsement
  • Medical and dental office endorsement
  • Eating establishment endorsement
  • Spoilage coverage
  • Bailee's customers goods coverage

Office Pac is available for Big "I" Markets member agents in all states except AK, FL, HI, LA, RI and TX.
