Entering a hospital for a surgery, emergency, or seeking a doctor's care for an illness requires trust. You trust that the doctor, staff and hospital are equipped to handle your needs. You trust that they will provide a certain level of care to ensure your well-being. You trust that they will act in accordance with professional standards and procedures to protect you or a loved one. When a doctor, hospital or member of the medical profession fails, any loss will be severe and possibly fatal.

Medical Malpractice Reform and Victims' Rights
While certain laws and reform have attempted to cap medical malpractice recoveries, it continues to be a very important area of law. Medical malpractice coverage is critical because it gives victims a chance to be heard, and reduces negligence in the medical profession. If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of medical negligence, it is important to know your options and your rights.
