Malpractice Insurance for Podiatrists

Medical Malpractice Insurance Quotes from Every Major Carrier

Malpractice insurance for Podiatrists is relatively inexpensive when compared to other medical specialties, but that doesn’t mean the profession doesn’t face its own unique set of liability risks or that there are no cost savings to be found by working with an experienced medical malpractice insurance agent.

What is Podiatrist Medical Malpractice Insurance?

Podiatrist malpractice insurance covers a wide scope of losses and liabilities that could potentially impact the success of a small practice. Medical malpractice insurance protects practicing physicians’ finances and their careers. Malpractice insurance also helps podiatrists comply with state laws and other requirements.

Why is Medical Malpractice Insurance for Podiatrists Important?

Podiatrists have long served a healthcare niche, but the number of patients seeking their help has been on the uptick. In addition to treating foot ailments such as ulcers, fractures, and deformity as well as skin or nail diseases, they are becoming more involved in treating symptoms of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. These additional treatments expose podiatrists to more risks and liability.

Potential Causes for Podiatrist Litigation

  • Allergic reactions or drug interactions 
  • Lack of informed consent 
  • Postsurgical infection
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Leaving surgical Implements inside the patient 
  • Negligent performance, such as nicking a nerve
  • Anesthesia errors
