What Is Medical Indemnity

Medical indemnity is a specific area of insurance that relates primarily to malpractice in medical professions. It applies to accidents, mistakes and other incidents and, in cases where negligence is proven, compensation is paid to the claimant.

People are only human and so even with the best experience and training in the world, accidents can sometimes happen and mistakes can be made. With our society becoming more and more litigious it is important to guard against the risk of legal action against you. Even if such action turns out to be spurious, the legal costs involved in defending a case can be extraordinarily expensive, which is why medical indemnity insurance is so important for medical professionals.

What makes medical indemnity slightly unusual when compared to other forms of insurance is that claims don’t often surface until a while after an incident has occurred. It may take some time for symptoms to develop or for a condition to be exacerbated, and it might take even longer for the cause to be established.
