Medical Malpractice (Healthcare Industry)

The medical profession covers a broad range of classifications ranging from medical centres, hospitals, aged care facilities, nurses AND group medical practices through to medical professions’ labour hire.

Malpractice claims expose medical professionals from all sectors of the healthcare industry to expensive litigation costs regardless of whether any negligence actually occurred.

Medical professionals, like all professionals,  face significant risks arising out of their professional duties and services with the costs of economic (i.e. lost earning capacity,  medical and life care expenses), non-economic damages (such as physical and psychological harm, the reduced enjoyment of life due to a disability or loss of a loved one, severe pain and emotional distress) and defence costs being significant.

Once again careful consideration of the various cover complexities and client requirements demands the right advice from an experienced broker such as Perrymans.
