How Insurance Can Impact Your Malpractice Claim
After suffering serious harm from an instance of medical malpractice, you may be surprised to learn how involved the health care provider’s insurance company is in your compensation claim. A hospital’s or doctor’s insurance provider can have a major impact on a medical malpractice claim, and you need to be sure your malpractice attorney knows how to handle the added challenge.
At Howell Law Firm, PC, we have more than 25 years of experience fighting against insurance companies in medical malpractice claims. We have secured some of the largest settlements in Southwest Georgia, and we are prepared to offer you the same representation. As we stand up for you, we want you to understand how insurance applies to your medical malpractice claim.
The Relationship Between Health Care And Insurance
In many ways, a hospital’s insurance company is what allows doctors and other medical professionals to practice on patients. Insurance companies offer protection from malpractice claims by covering the cost of settlements, damages, court fees and other legal expenses. This coverage allows medical professionals to treat patients, but it also comes with limits.
When insurance policies have upper limits to the amount they can pay for settlements in a malpractice claim, they will often take part in settlement negotiations to avoid that limit and save their company money. Our job as your legal representation will be to explore all possible options for maximizing the compensation you receive in your compensation claim. If negotiating with insurance companies cannot provide you with the outcome you deserve, we are prepared to fight for it in court.
