Two usual friends, doctors and malpractice carriers, part company resulting in a $3.4 million verdict handed down against Medicus Insurance Company. A Texas jury found that the company committed unfair and deceptive practices when it wrongly denied insurance coverage to a Dallas doctor. Specifically, the jury found that the malpractice insurance company misrepresented the quality and standards of its indemnification practices, resulting in millions of dollars in damages for the doctor.
What? It is confusing. But apparently the doctor got hit with a verdict and the insurance company refused to pay, leaving the doctor in the lurch. You can get more, albeit sketchy, details here.
