Frequently Asked Questions

What is a claim?

Answer

A claim is a demand to be compensated for an alleged injury. The most obvious example is when you are being sued. You may encounter a situation with a patient who is unhappy with an outcome. This is not a claim until there is a demand for compensation or formal proceedings based on alleged medical negligence are initiated. We do encourage you to call our Claims Advice Hotline at 1-800-640-6504 and discuss the situation.
