Medical Malpractice Liability – Trends and Insurance Implications

At OneBeacon, we believe that expertise matters. And sharing our expertise is one way we help you get to know OneBeacon better. Next week, we’re excited to sponsor a Business Insurance webinar on the topic of medical malpractice liability.

Participating on the expert panel during this one-hour complimentary webinar is Barbara Sinclair, Senior Vice President and Complex Risks Division Leader within OneBeacon’s Professional Insurance group.

As noted by Business Insurance, medical malpractice coverage costs are expected to experience modest increases, driven primarily by continued consolidation among providers and projected increases in health-care utilization.

Join us Tuesday, June 11 at 2 p.m. Eastern time when Barbara and the panel will discuss navigating potential medical malpractice liability issues, industry consolidation and the implications of health reform on medical malpractice insurers and health-care providers.

OBPI's Barbara Sinclair will participate in the panel discussion.
