Do Diagnostic Medical Laboratories Need Malpractice Insurance?
Yes. Medical Laboratories can be involved in malpractice lawsuits in a variety ways. In the event of negligence, such as mistaken diagnosis or mishandled/mislabeled specimen, this coverage is there to protect your laboratory against malpractice claims.
In addition to negligent services, medical laboratories, their directors, and entire staff can be involved in umbrella malpractice suits. Medical services and professionals, no matter how remotely connected, may be found liable in large malpractice lawsuits.
