Medical Malpractice Insurance
Thoracic Surgeons are qualified physicians that perform surgeries on organs or structures of the chest. The two major organs targeted by these surgeries are the lungs (pulmonary) and the heart (cardiothoracic) surgery. Surgeons are one of the high-risk groups of physicians that are subjected to medical malpractice lawsuits, including thoracic surgeons. While the new non-invasive surgical procedure poses low risks to the patients, there is always a chance of something going wrong in the medical practice. This makes it important for thoracic surgeons to have adequate malpractice insurance to avoid unnecessary lawsuits.
Statistics for Thoracic Surgeons
- In any given year, approximately 19% of the thoracic-cardiovascular surgeons are sued for medical malpractice.
- The average indemnity, in 2008, for thoracic surgery malpractice claims was $214,487.
