What is Professional Indemnity?

Professional Indemnity insurance covers legal costs and expenses incurred in your defence, as well as any damages or costs that may be awarded, if you are alleged/convicted to have provided inadequate services to your patient. (Negligence or wrong treatments or accidents).


Why you need Professional Indemnity??

We fall in the ambit of the CPA Act as per the Hon. Supreme court verdict 1995 and hence liable to be penalised in court of law for negligence if any.The recent amended Consumer Protection Act CPA 2019 has brought in lot of changes in the favour of the consumers. E-Filing of complaints have been introduced enabling any patient to file a case against you sitting at home without any advocate or much legal fees. The Compensation awarding limits of the courts have been significantly increased. The lowest forum of the consumer court ieDistrict Commission: Upto 1 cr, State Commission: 1cr – 10cr, National Commission: > 10 cr. To top it all, the patient can now file a complaint against you even in the jurisdiction where he/she reside or work in any parts of the country it may be and you have to defend your case in that jurisdiction.Any aggrieved patient can thus more easily drag you to the consumer court seeking hefty compensations in the wake of the above amendments in the new CPA Act.So being guarded properly is the need of the hour.

 

The dental and OMFS treatmentsare considered by the public to be expensive. There has been a significant risein the litigations in the recent years. The extent of mental stress and trouble and financial strain a litigation gives a doctor is unimaginable. Considering the vulnerability of our profession it is a must to have a good Professional Indemnity insurance which takes care of your entire legal needs and gives you total relief and peace of mind.
