Medical Malpractice

South Africans are aligning themselves with the international community in becoming more litigious. This is why it’s essential for medical professionals to protect themselves and their practice.

Medical malpractice insurance is cover for medical professionals against medical negligence claims, such as surgical errors, misdiagnosis or disregarding patient history. Medical negligence is an act, error or omission by a medical professional that deviates from the accepted medical standard of care, resulting in damages.
