Protection Plans

Medical Justice is offered across the country and includes a tiered array of plans ranging from bare basic, prospective only (future-events) to those including protection addressing historical (prior-events). Finally, there are available solutions for open medical malpractice lawsuits and reputation protection.

Physician’s Shield

This is the core prospective program that deals with medico-legal issues that arise from medical events that may occur in the future.

Features:

Pursuit of counterclaims against expert witnesses in their professional societies and state licensing boards…

Allocation of up to $100,000 to pursue viable counterclaims, when requested and appropriate…

Proactive early action strategy that can be executed in the event you are sued for medical malpractice…

Example of Benefit:

The Physician’s Shield plan is purchased by a surgeon today. The surgeon performs an appendectomy in three months, and is sued six months later. The surgeon has protection.

Add-on Protections:

Add-on protections include all features of the Physician’s Shield plan…

RETRO
Features:

This retroactive protection deals with medical events in the past that have not yet become the basis of an open medical malpractice suit.

Example of Benefit:

A doctor purchases Physician’s Shield and RETRO plan today. The doctor performed an appendectomy five months ago, and is sued six months from today. The doctor has protection.

PE Shield is a one-time purchase and requires the purchase of all three plans: Physician’s Shield, RETRO, and PE Shield.

PE Lite
Features:

Designed to give near-term benefits for the physician at an economical rate, PE Lite maximizes the likelihood that a frivolous case will be dropped and the physician dismissed from the case, sooner than later.

PE Lite provides tactical measures to notify the plaintiff’s attorney, explaining the potential ramifications for pursuing a meritless case. PE Lite does not include the countersuit plan for pre-existing suits (PE Shield).

Example of Benefit:

A doctor with an existing medical malpractice suit (or intent to sue) purchases Physician’s Shield, RETRO, and PE Lite protection today. The doctor performed an appendectomy three months ago, and has a pre-existing suit with notice of intent to sue.

The doctor would have protection for the pre-existing suit plus any new suit arising from past or future medical events addressed by the Physician’s Shield and RETRO plans.

PE Lite is a one-time purchase and requires the purchase of all three plans: Physician’s Shield, RETRO, and PE Lite.

PE Shield
Features:

This add-on protection deals with medical events that occurred in the past that are currently the nature of an open medical malpractice suit. PE Shield provides early action tactics plus potential services including counterclaims down the road.

Example of Benefit:

A doctor purchases the Physician’s Shield, RETRO, and PE Shield protection today. The doctor has an open case that has a trial date beyond 60 days from purchase. The doctor would receive the protections of the early action program (PE Lite), plus the counter-claim program included with PE Shield.

PE Shield is a one-time purchase and requires the purchase of all three plans: Physician’s Shield, RETRO, and PE Shield.
