Medical Malpractice Insurance
Medical Malpractice Insurance offers professional liability coverage for physicians and healthcare providers. When patients or families of patients allege negligence or malpractice on the part of the medical provider, this type of insurance will cover legal expenses in relation to any lawsuits. This includes defense attorney fees, court costs and any settlements or judgments rendered against the medical provider. Most states require providers to carry some form of medical malpractice insurance to be able to practice medicine.
