As the number of medical legal cases being filed is increasing, it is essential for doctors to have professional indemnity insurance. It works as an added layer of protection. It helps safeguard your business assets and wealth in case you are involved in a legal battle. It protects you against claims of misdiagnosis, negligence, incorrect treatment and overdose. At the most basic level, it aids you in paying legal fees and damages to the third party. Offering end-to-end solutions, a Bajaj Finserv Indemnity Insurance for Doctors, is one of the best professional insurance policies in the market. Take a look at its highlight features that make it a wise choice for medical practitioners:

High coverage amount

Most importantly, you want the indemnity policy of your choice to provide adequate coverage to your business. You must arrive at an amount based on the size of your practice, the identifiable risks and your budget. Bajaj Finserv’s Indemnity Insurance for Doctors offers coverage from Rs. 50 lakh up to Rs. 1 crore.

For example, a blood transfusion that is taking place at your clinic goes wrong. The negligence results in the patient suffering from Hepatitis B. The patient’s family sues you for Rs. 50 lakh because of your oversight. In such cases, the indemnity policy pays for legal costs as well as for damages.
