Having professional protection is essential. This means protection against the potentially harmful costs of litigation, as well as the other challenges you might face throughout your career.
Claims-made protection gives you access to all the benefits of Medical Protection membership – including expert medicolegal advice, support, and a whole range of risk prevention tools and techniques – along with the right to request assistance with claims for damages, costs or compensation arising from adverse clinical incidents.
When we take on a member’s case, we can take care of all the legal costs and damages or compensation payments up to a discretionary limit of R50 million.
This limit applies to all legal costs and compensation payments arising from adverse incidents that are reported in a single membership year. This limit is for:
- one individual adverse incident, or
- the total of all adverse incidents reported in a single membership year.
To help you understand more about claims-made protection, we have provided some additional information for you, including a guide and a video animation to explain how claims-made protection works and a series of Frequently Asked Questions to help answer some of the questions you may have.
