Medical Malpractice – Establishments

Medical Malpractice Insurance is essential protection for those operating medical establishments at risk of breaching their professional duty of care. Cover provides for potential significant legal costs and settlements as a shield for financial loss. Medical Malpractice Insurance complements the separate insurance cover available for medical practitioners (doctors).

Typically a Medical Malpractice insurance policy is designed for healthcare establishments, practices and clinics including:

• complimentary medicine clinics
• day surgeries
• imaging and diagnostic clinics
• IVF clinics
• medical centres
• pathology labs
• Private Hospitals
• Home Nursing Services
• Day Surgeries
• Optometrists
• Medical Centres • Podiatrists
• Rehabilitation Centres
• Chemists
• Radiology Practices
• Laser Eye Surgeries
• Pathology Laboratories
• Natural Therapists
• Nursing Homes and Retirement Villages
and other medical facilities

Medical Malpractice – Practitioner’s Defence Cover

We can access some Medical Defence Unions that provide Medical Malpractice insurance for individual Medical Practitioners and Medical Students. While most practitioners prefer to deal direct with their Medical Defence Union as a member, it is possible for us to arrange this cover for you which has the particular advantage of arranging this in conjunction with your other insurances such as the Medical Establishment and Property Insurance for your rooms or clinic. We can be there to not only make sure your cover is arranged but be there to support any claims on your behalf. We are your “One Stop Shop” for insurance arrangements.

D&O premium pool ‘must treble’ to return to profitability

A new report – called "Show Me The Money!" by insurer XL Catlin and law firm Wotton + Kearney – is the second in a series of three white papers on securities class actions and their impact on the Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) market. The main conclusion is that Directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurance premiums are under-priced significantly and need to rise strongly to restore profitability. The main risk areas are those exposed to securities class actions, 

It says Directors & Officer's Side A, Side B and Side C cover has been chronically underpriced since at least 2011, while the frequency of class actions is increasing as more plaintiff lawyers and litigation funders enter the space.

The analysis suggests last year’s overall premium pool of about $210 million would need to increase by at least three times to establish a profitable market, if it is assumed all other factors stay unchanged.

“Recent market developments would indicate most D&O insurers are now endeavouring to restore some semblance of profitability to their portfolios after years of market losses,” the report says.
