Clinical Trials Liability Insurance

Specialist protection tailored to your needs

Clinical Trials Liability insurance protects researchers and subjects alike. Coverage includes both negligent and no-fault harm caused – because you can do everything right and there still be serious consequences. 

When it comes to running clinical trials, solid insurance is the only ethical way forward. Even the most well-prepared, thoroughly-researched study can have unexpected consequences. That's why you owe it to your trial subjects and your colleagues to have the cover arranged by a specialist.

You wouldn't take unnecessary risks with your subjects' health. Don't take risks with your insurance either.
