Our Medical Malpractice Insurance provides coverage for non-physician healthcare professionals such as nurses, physician' assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, medical technicians and others.
Should you run your own clinic we also provide cyber and office insurance to protect you and your office from these claims.
If your patient suffers bodily injury, sickness, illness, mental injury, or even death after relying on your advice as a medical professional, the patient or their legal representative has the right to commence legal action against you could evolve into a costly claim.
In many case doctors and physicians may be required to buy insurance by law or by contract but it is not always the case for Allied Health workers.
