Not All Doctors In Maryland Have As Much Medical Malpractice Insurance As You May Think

Posted by Frank Spector | May 17, 2013 | 0 Comments

Many people who contact us just assume that the doctor has enough insurance to cover the claim for medical malpractice.

There is no requirement under Maryland law that a doctor have any malpractice insurance. But most do.

However, most private practice doctors carry 1 million dollars in coverage. While that may sound like a lot, if you are hurt badly, the high cost of future care could exceed 1 million dollars.

Hospitals generally have much more coverage than a doctor in private practice.

In some cases, there is no coverage if the doctor has not not paid the premium or has been cancelled.

So just know that just because a doctor is a doctor, he or she may not have as much insurance as you think.

If you have any questions about medical malpractice, please call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT or fill out the contact form on this page or on any page of our website.
