Uninsured Doctor Birth Injuries
“Can we file a birth injury lawsuit against a doctor who has no medical liability insurance?”
In short, the answer is yes. Cases involving uninsured doctor birth injuries in which provable medical malpractice negligence has occurred can generally be developed into lawsuits.
Florida state law does not require that a licensed physician carry medical liability insurance if that physician meets specific requirements set forth in the law.1 The law does, however, require that a statement be prominently posted stating the following:
“Under Florida law, physicians are generally required to carry medical malpractice insurance or otherwise demonstrate financial responsibility to cover potential claims for medical malpractice. YOUR DOCTOR HAS DECIDED NOT TO CARRY MEDICAL MALPRACTICE INSURANCE. This is permitted under Florida law subject to certain conditions. Florida law imposes penalties against noninsured physicians who fail to satisfy adverse judgments arising from claims of medical malpractice. This notice is provided pursuant to Florida law.”
Similar allowances and requirements are also granted to part-time physicians within this law.1 The law does not exempt an uninsured doctor from financial responsibility, nor does it block the potential for individuals to file a provable lawsuit related to uninsured doctor birth injuries.
