Capson Physicians Insurance Offering Attorneys, Not Claims Adjusters, to Facilitate Claims

12 12 2017

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 12, 2017 -- In a break from traditional professional liability carriers for solo and small practice physicians, Capson is providing in-house attorneys to help facilitate claims for insureds. According to Capson Physicians Insurance President & Founder, Maury Magids, when a medical malpractice claim is made against a physician, most carriers assign a claims adjuster to work through the process. "Up to five months can go by before any significant action may be taken on a claim. Claims adjusters will typically work with local defense to resolve issues, if possible," Magids said.  "And non-meritorious claims can cost around $40,000 and three years to resolve. Capson assigns attorney support from the moment a claim is reported. In addition, our select defense panel includes senior partners from leading medical malpractice law firms." This model creates a peer-to-peer relationship between Capson attorneys and patient attorneys, reducing the time...
