What Limit Should I Purchase?
The complexity of Malpractice claims make it difficult to advise "how much is enough".
Four Important Considerations when Deciding your Excess Limits
1. The size of your practice:
A larger practice has more patients, which means more exposure to potentials claims.
2. Years in business:
The longer you’ve been practicing, the more potential for claims. Some communities may be more likely to pursue legal remedies.
3. Location of your practice:
Some communities may be more likely to pursue legal remedies.
4. Tolerance for risk and Cost/Benefit:
Your tolerance for risk will guide you on whether or not the benefit of higher limits is worth the cost. As frequency in claims and defence costs increase, ask yourself, "What limit will help me sleep at night?"
Why Should you buy Legal Expense Insurance?
