Malpractice Insurance: Are You Really Covered?
A recorded webinar with Larry Westreich, MD and Ann McNary, JD

The purchase of medical malpractice insurance is an important decision that can affect a physician€™s professional and personal life for many years to come. In this program we will discuss the different types of insurance available and review important contractual elements to look for in a policy. In addition, cases studies illustrating common causes of malpractice litigation and a discussion of what elements a plaintiff must prove to prevail in a medical malpractice suit will be presented to further illustrate the importance of choosing the right coverage.
