Medical Malpractice

 

What distinguishes CFP

From other professional indemnity insurance brokers?

  1. We specialize in the placement of liability insurance. We are not general insurance brokers that ‘dabble’ in the placement of liability insurance. Generalist brokers often do not have the necessary skill and experience to place these specialist types of insurance properly and can cost their clients dearly when it comes to a claim that is rejected because the broker failed to arrange the correct cover for their client.
  2. 18 years’ experience in professional indemnity and medical malpractice insurance broking.
  3. Long-standing relationships with many of our clients.
  4. Excellent knowledge of available insurance ‘markets’ and access to their products ensures that we are able to obtain competitive rates and wordings for you from a number of alternative insurers.
  5. Our competence and commitment to rendering a professional and personal service with rigorous attention to detail.
