Physician's Consent to Settle
Will your current insurance carrier ask for a physician’s consent before settling a claim, or will it make that huge decision based solely on its bottom line? Some commercial carriers settle nonmeritorious claims because it can be less expensive than defending the claim.
If a physician's primary insurance is with LAMMICO, we will not settle a medical professional liability claim against you without your consent subject to the terms of your policy.
