What is the difference between Medical Malpractice & Professional Indemnity Insurance?
The coverage for both these insurances is very similar; however, medical malpractice insurance not only covers economic loss, but also injury and property damage following professional negligence, which professional indemnity won’t cover.
As mentioned, unlike public liability insurance, both cover compensation claims arising out of professional activities. However, the cover under a professional indemnity policy is a lot more restrictive than the cover under a medical malpractice policy.
Professional indemnity insurance only covers compensation claims involving purely economic losses. This means that if someone makes a claim against the service alleging that the service professional negligence resulted in them being injured or their property being damaged, professional indemnity insurance would not cover.
