Navigator has arranged this free legal consultation service to give support to its medical professional clients and business contacts. There is an increasing awareness among medical professionals to protect themselves from claims. This is a big and growing group comprising Western medicine doctors, Chinese medicine practitioners, naturopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors etc. Medical professionals feel that they need more insurance protection especially in the following areas:
- public liability cover for accidents causing injuries to patients and other visitors while on the clinic’s premises;
- cover for fire and other damage to the clinic, cover for interruption to business and loss of income; and
- professional indemnity cover for medical negligence claims.
Understanding insurance policies has become very important for medical professionals in these increasingly complex times. There is now a real need to step up risk control, especially when clients and visitors are becoming more sophisticated and demanding.
Those who wish to benefit from the free legal consultation are welcome to contact Navigator's Customer Service Department to make the arrangement. Please call 2530 2530 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
