Medical malpractice insurance provides indemnity for professional negligence by act or omission by a healthcare provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient.
Any individual or company that provides a service within the healthcare industry is at risk of being sued by a dissatisfied patient. Whether a treatment goes wrong or the patient alleges that a treatment has gone wrong, there will often be a claim made for compensation.
