Professional Liability Insurance for Pilates Instructors

Professional Liability insurance - which is also referred to as errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance) - is a type of policy that provides coverage in the event a customer alleges negligence from your professional services.

As a pilates instructor, it is your job to guide someone through a workout and advise them on what to do, and how to do it. If you are accused of or are negligent in during your instruction, it’s not unusual for a claim to be filed against your business. Professional liability insurance may cover some of the costs while dealing with those claims.

Professional liability insurance usually covers:

  • Negligence or alleged negligence
  • Legal defense costs
  • Claims involving libel and/or slander
  • Copyright infringement
  • And more

Professional liability insurance usually does not cover:

  • Intentional negligence
  • Bodily injury
  • Property damage
  • False advertising

General Liability Insurance For Pilates Instructors

General liability insurance is sometimes combined with professional liability insurance, but make sure you check to see if your coverage includes both options.

If you work at a studio or you instruct on a client’s property, accidents may happen that may or may not be your fault. For example, say you are asked to lead a corporate event with a pop-up pilates class at your studio. You’re asked to prepare equipment for 25 students, and so you start lugging your mats, rings, weights, and resistance bands. While unloading the equipment, a participant trips on some weights and requires hospitalization. General liability may cover some of the medical costs.

General liability usually covers:

  • Bodily injury
  • Third-party property damage
  • Personal and advertising injury
  • Medical expenses
  • Defense costs
  • Supplemental payments

General liability insurance usually does not cover:

  • Damage to your own property
  • Professional services
  • Workers compensation or injury to own employees
  • Known claims or potential claims
