A physician simply cannot be adequately protected without addressing both medical malpractice insurance coverage and implementation of asset protection strategies.  In today’s environment, many physicians are simply unable to obtain or unable to afford to purchase sufficient insurance coverage to protect their personal and practice assets from an average medical malpractice judgment, which is currently in excess of $1,400,000 in Florida.  Though the tort reform legislation has been helpful in reducing the frequency of claims filed against physicians, the problem of the severity of the claim is a larger problem than ever.  The time to become a CAPS+ physician is now – not only for the asset protection and asset preservation, but also for the direct access to the very best medical malpractice defense attorneys and healthcare risk managers.

Medical Malpractice Defense Solutions

Approximately 20% of all physicians are involved in a medical malpractice claim at any given time.  The CAPS+ program includes the First Response Service. When a CAPS+ physician receives a Notice of Intent to Initiate Litigation, that physician receives the advice and direction of our network of experienced medical malpractice defense attorneys as to the liability exposure that exists in the case and how best to handle the case.  This opinion letter from defense counsel is in addition to the legal representation being provided by the physician’s medical malpractice insurance carrier.  Our defense attorney also advises plaintiff’s counsel that they have sued a CAPS+ physician, who implemented a comprehensive asset protection solutions plan.  This has proven to be a major factor in the successful dismissal and/or defense of the claim.
