Medical Malpractice

Your clinic can have state-of-the-art facilities and technologies.
But what if the treatment goes sour due to negligence of doctors?

What is Medical Malpractice Insurance?

Medical malpractice typically concerns the negligence of a healthcare professional. In order to prove, it usually requires evidence that the plaintiff suffered medical injuries due to a medical professional’s breach of conduct. Such examples include, prescribing wrong medicines, giving wrong medical advice, performing wrong surgery and reckless handling of a patient's body.

Hence, medical malpractice liability refers to when a person or multiple people is held legally responsible for a patient’s injuries. Typically, it involves one party but it is not out of the ordinary to involve multiple parties. For example, if a nurse may have followed a wrongful doctor instruction, both parties can be held liable.

What does Medical Malpractice Insurance cover?

Medical malpractice insurance covers a wide range of expenses. The following are basic coverages that are generally included in a Medical Malpractice policy:

  • Attorney fees
  • court costs
  • Settlement costs
  • Medical damages
  • Arbitation costs
  • Compensation
  • Unintentional intellectual property infringement
  • Reasonable and neccesary costs of replacing or restoring lost documents
