How does Malpractice Liability Insurance work?

Malpractice Liability Insurance in action

A patient dies of unknown causes in an aged care facility and a coronial inquest is held at the request of the deceased's family.

With Malpractice Liability Insurance in place, CCI provides cover for legal representation for the facility. The Coroners Court determines the facility is not responsible for the death and CCI covers the legal costs of $75,000.
