Medical Malpractice Insurance covers physicians and other professionals for liability claims arising from their treatment of patients. Claims occur when treatment provided falls below a patient’s accepted standard of practice and causes injury or death. Anyone can file a law suit but to be found liable a patient must show some type of negligence involving medical error. Standards and regulations for medical malpractice vary by jurisdiction so it’s very important to obtain the right coverage.
In addition, plaintiffs can wait to file a claim for two or three year after discovery of an injury that allegedly resulted from malpractice. This long delay means that physicians have substantial uncertainty about what their liability ultimately will be.
