Clinical Trials Liability

Even the most well prepared, perfectly executed study can have serious consequences. Clinical Trials Liability insurance protects researchers and subjects alike, for both negligent and no-fault harm. It covers both legal defence costs and compensation pay-outs.

Getting the insurance right is an important step in the risk management of a medical trial. Our specialist medical insurance consultants will help you mitigate your risk, in the most cost-effective way possible. By planning for a claim scenario from the outset, we ensure all the crucial risk thinking is in place before the trial proceeds.
