Nexus Insurance Services Helps Doctors With Malpractice Lawsuits or Medical Board Issues

Press release from: Nexus Insurance Services

Nexus Insurance Services, a firm that specializes in malpractice insurance, is now extending services to doctors who have medical malpractice lawsuits or medical board issues filed against them.

There are doctors who are currently going through litigation for malpractice or maybe they have experienced a malpractice case in the past. If a doctor has multiple lawsuits or just one sizable claim against them, it creates a challenge to acquire affordable medical malpractice insurance. Even if these lawsuits are later found to be frivolous, it still poses a problem for doctors seeking insurance because many insurance providers will not cover them.

Doctors are still able to work and practice medicine during a malpractice lawsuit. They are also allowed to work even if found liable in a court of law. The exception is if the doctor falsified records or committed a grossly negligent act, which has caused him/her to be a danger to other patients.

"We want to help those doctors whom otherwise would not be able to acquire medical malpractice because of past lawsuits," said Michael Kataf of Nexus Insurance Services. "We understand that mistakes are made. Most medical professionals understand the need for protection, however, some doctors believe that if they are careful and conscientious, or if they think they provide low-risk care, their patients will never sue them. Medical malpractice insurance has become a financial burden for many doctors, which has caused many of them to exclude it from their budget. However, if doctors do not protect themselves with insurance, it creates a huge problem if a patient does decide to sue, regardless if they really are at fault or not."

There has been much debate in regards to malpractice insurance and the effect it has on the United States health care system. The issue of rising malpractice rates and the impact it has on medical professionals has been a topic of national concern in recent years. It has received widespread attention both in the media and in the discussions and writings of health care professionals. Currently there are only a few states that do require doctors carry malpractice insurance with either a minimum or specific limit of liability, which is a step towards reform.

Nexus Insurance Services is a professional insurance broker that has helped many doctors, lawyers, realtors, and business owners gain access to insurance providers for their practice or business. The company's mission is to be a firm that brings real value to clients, builds personal relationships on top of business ones, and always conducts itself with sincerity, integrity and fairness. Because of the relationships with many providers, the company is able to shop a client's application around to get the best rates. Contact Nexus Insurance for a free, no obligation quote on physician malpractice insurance, professional liability insurance, or workers compensation insurance.
