Clinical negligence

We partner with specialist firms to handle any type of clinical negligence case and even offer top-up cover to existing DAS ATE or BTE policies.

Our flexible pricing structure provides long-term financial support for our solicitor business partners and their clients, enabling them to successfully fight – and win – highly complex cases.

How does it work?

To save you time, our delegated acceptance and online case submission options mean that you have more time to focus on your client’s case.

Access to this is available once we’ve undertaken some eligibility checks based on volume, performance history and specialism in this area of litigation.

We then ask you to sign up to an insurance agency and mutual business agreement with DAS and you’re ready to go.

What type of cases can be insured?

We can cover a wide range of clinical negligence cases including dental, cosmetic surgery and product liability claims.

What does it include?

This ATE policy will cover all of your client’s investigation costs and disbursements, along with their risk of adverse costs (including counsel’s fees) right through to the very end of the claim.

How much cover is available?

The range of indemnity available is up to £500,000.

How much does it cost?

Our aim is to provide affordable access to justice for claimants and so our cover is competitively priced, with the cost varying depending on the case type and stage of litigation.

We offer fixed premiums with fixed levels of cover, so your clients know exactly how much will be deducted from their damages. What’s more, all of our clinical negligence premiums are deferred and self-insured, meaning that they are only paid if the case is successful.
