Veterinary Office Insurance in Edmonton KY & Glasgow KY

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 Glass & Thompson Insurance Agency 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.

Our Providers

What a privilege to have both our business, auto and home insurance with Glass Thompson. They're home-town folks here in Edmonton, but the rates they found us are competitive with much larger markets. My wife and I had our insurance with a great independent company in Lexington for several years. They'd saved us several hundred dollars a year over Farm Bureau. Now we live here, and Glass Thompson was able to save us even more and increase our coverage too. Thanks to all the friendly, courteous, and always helpful staff at GTI.

Our family has had our policies through Glass and Thompson for decades and we've never been disappointed! Recently, I had a rental car issue and they went above and beyond to help with the claim. Any questions or concerns were met with a "let me check on this for you" and those concerns were quickly resolved. I couldn't be more satisfied with their knowledge and friendliness. So glad they are my insurance agent!

There is not another company anywhere that offers better customer service! I recently had to add a teenage driver to my policy and Jamie was wonderful to walk me thru the process and reevaluated my current policy to make sure that I was getting the best coverage at the best rate. Everyone at Glass Thompson works hard to make each transaction pleasant.
