Medical Malpractice Insurance Cover
Medical indemnity cover is essential in todays fast moving environment as the potential for errors in the performance of services, whether they are true or not are becoming increasingly popular. If treatment falls below the accepted standard of practice resulting in injury or death to a patient, it is highly likely that a financial claim will be made. Being a healthcare professional you’ll be well aware of the increasing frequency of legal action being taken.
A professional indemnity insurance policy will not respond to claims for bodily injury, and a public liability policy will not respond to claims arising from advice; this is why it is essential for medical professionals to have valid medical indemnity cover as it bridges the gap between the two cover types.
Legal liability can arise from mental injury, bodily injury, illness, disease or death that has be caused by someone who has committed a neglectful act, error or emission or a “good samaritan” act. This highlights the need to find the best cover for you at the right price.
