Medical Malpractice Insurance for Health Care Professionals and Medical Establishments.
Medical malpractice insurance provides defence and indemnity in respect of allegations of medical negligence, often resulting from injury, death or mental anguish.
What is Medical Malpractice Insurance?
Medical malpractice insurance (or medical indemnity insurance) covers errors or omissions in the course of your professional duties as a medical professional. It is different from professional indemnity, which often exclude bodily injury. Medical Malpractice not only covers negligent medical advice or care, but importantly extends to cover the injury that can result. Medical Malpractice Insurance is often a claims made policy. This means the medical malpractice insurance must be in place at the time the claim is made. Claims can result from allegations negligent medical advice, negligent medical care, neglect, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose and mental destress.
