Medical Malpractice – Individuals and Entities - All Types of Specialties
What is malpractice insurance?
Malpractice insurance, also known as professional liability insurance, covers doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists and other medical professionals including the entities they work for, such as labs, clinics, hospitals and treatment centers, in the event of a malpractice lawsuit. Malpractice is a medical error or wrongful act that has resulted in an adverse outcome, such as injury or death. In a malpractice lawsuit, the error must be proven to have been caused by negligence or a departure from the standard of care. Malpractice insurance compensates legal fees, regardless of fault, and any damages awarded.
One of the most important decisions for a physician or medical entity is choosing the right policy, as they are not written on a standardized policy form such as general liability. This means, no two medical malpractice policies are the same.
Working with experienced medical malpractice insurance professionals and carriers that understand the exposures is paramount. Without proper liability protection from a dedicated carrier, a malpractice lawsuit could be financially devastating. It is vital to select or create the policy that meets all of your needs.
