Medical Malpractice Insurance

Medical malpractice insurance, is in practice a hybrid of public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance, responding to claims arising from both bodily injury, including metal and psychological damage, from both physical procedures and from advice, or indeed a combination of the two.
Generally speaking a professional indemnity insurance policy will not respond to claims for bodily injury, and a public liability policy will not respond to claims arising from advice. Medical malpractice insurance bridges the gap between the two covers.
Policies vary from underwriter to underwriter, and from profession to professions, but fundamentally fall into two categories;
Malpractice — based in professional indemnity and responding to the policyholders legal liability arising out of any bodily injury, mental injury, illness, disease or death of any patient caused by any negligent act, error or omission committed by the insured in or about the conduct of the insured's occupation or business as stated in the schedule, or Good Samaritan Acts.
Treatment Risks — fundamentally a public liability insurance policy extended to include breach of professional duty consequent upon any neglect, error or omission in providing advice, treatment or prescriptions or professional services.
One major difference between the two standard forms of contract is the basis upon which a claim may be made. Malpractice insurance, similar to professional indemnity is generally written on a "claims made" basis, whilst Treatment Risks are written on a "claims occurring" basis.
These important distinctions relate to the claims to which a policy responds. Claims occurring means that the policy responds to claims that actually occur during the period of insurance, this being the situation that most general insurance clients are familiar with in other classes of insurance. Claims made means that the policy responds to claims that are actually brought against he policyholder during the period of insurance.
Where policies are written on a claims made basis, consideration must be given to retroactive cover, to provide for claims that may arise from previous work.
It is also important to appreciate that upon retirement or cessation of business, if insurance has been held on a claims made basis, "run-off" cover will be required to protect the policyholder in future years against new claims.

Professional Indeminity Insurance

Esteema offers a comprehensive range of professional indemnity and professional liability insurance services in the United Kingdom.
Our dedicated professional indemnity insurance division offers a very competitive service to a complete and diverse range of professions, occupations and activities in the UK and abroad.
Professional indemnity insurance protects the policyholder against their legal liability to third parties arising from their negligence, similar to other forms of liability insurance contract, it is a contract of legal liability, rather than one of moral obligation.
Claims arise from two areas, under tort, negligence, or under the terms of a contract. The professional indemnity insurance policy is suited to individuals and businesses that undertake work of a professional nature, such as the provision of advice, specification, design, rather than the physical supply of a product or service. In most cases any contract for services will include an implied condition that the professional exercises a reasonable level of professional skill in the execution of the contract. In many cases more onerous terms also appear in the contract.
The prudent professional should carefully review contract terms to ensure that additional legal liabilities are not being created, and certainly ensure that these are understood and accepted by their professional indemnity insurance provider. It is for these reasons that underwriters may often request sight of standard forms of contract and notification of any diversion from this.
