Healthcare practitioners must adhere to the highest standards of care when treating and advising their patients. Although we sometimes view physicians and nurses as infallible, they are human and are capable of making mistakes. A misdiagnosis or error in judgment can make a patient’s condition worse, or in some cases, contribute to their death.
Patients who believe that their doctor or nurse was negligent when diagnosing or treating their illness or injury may decide to take legal action in an attempt to recover a monetary award. Did you know that almost half of physicians 55 or older reported in 2022 that they had been sued at some point in their careers? A successful lawsuit could have severe professional and personal consequences for a healthcare provider. Because of the high risk, these practitioners must carry sufficient medical professional liability insurance coverage to protect them from a substantial financial loss.
