Veterinary Office Insurance in Alexandria MN & Glenwood MN

As a veterinarian, you no doubt take your responsibility to animals and pet owners seriously. You have worked long and hard to become qualified to take care of people's animals—whether they are working farm animals or family pets. Just as doctors who take care of people do, you need to have insurance to cover your practice against the many things that could go wrong.

Veterinary Office Insurance Features

If you are a veterinary business office owner, your veterinary insurance starts with insuring your building and equipment for fire, natural disasters, theft and general liability.

Veterinarians, however, need more than just protection for their commercial office space. Just as with human medicine, a good veterinary insurance policy has malpractice insurance in case events go awry in veterinary medicine. Busy staff can have accidents or make mistakes. An animal may suffer an unforeseen issue you cannot prevent. Still, you may be held responsible in a court of law. Malpractice insurance can cover your business if anyone in your practice makes a mistake.

One area of concern for veterinarians is the "consent to settle" option in some policies. This means the veterinarian must give approval in writing to settle a case even if the insurance company recommends settling. In some cases, policies will not cover expenses incurred from a lost lawsuit if the insurer recommended settling and you refused, which is called a "hammer clause."

Sometimes business problems occur outside of legal matters in which an accident or a mistake transpires that can open you to liability. For example, a pet could be injured by putting it in an open area with another animal. An honest mistake like this could expose your company to liability.

Call Timm Agency Insurance for a full explanation of all your options as a veterinarian. Different policies are available, and we offer policies for those who work only on small animals; for those who only work in the equine field; and for offices or for field work, respectively. Our professionals can help you find the best policy for you, so give us a call today and let us make sure you're covered.

Testimonials

I have been with The Timm Agency for over a decade, most of it while living in Minneapolis. They have always been quick to respond and I have had a number of instances when they've called to say they've found me better rates! Impeccable service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Daylon saved me hundreds and gave me better insurance policies. When the time came to make a claim he was timely and he guided me through the process. Switching to The Jeff Timm Agency was one of the best financial decisions I've made in the past few years. -I. Triebold

For years, we had our homeowners policy with a local company and were VERY unhappy with the service we received. So we looked into switching. One year later, I am happy to say that after a claim we recently had to make we are BLOWN AWAY by the care, and service we received from you all! Thank you!!!!
