How do I obtain medical malpractice coverage information of my provider?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Jensen Beach, FL

The lawyer has already sent a letter trying to obtain all the contact information and details about my provider's medical malpractice insurance. However, the provider has not responded by the deadline. Without filing a suit how do I obtain that information? Is there some kind of database that provides this information?

    Answered . You can go to the Florida Department of Health Website and go to "healthcare providers". Type in the name of the doctor and you will be provided info re: his or her insurance coverage and any previous disciplinary actions or lawsuits/ settlements. This can be extremely helpful information, depending on the nature of your claim.

    You should confer with your attorney to discuss the status of your claim. As you may have been told, you first need to file a notice of intent to litigate with the doctor prior to being able to file a lawsuit.

    Good Luck,

    Answered . I would suggest that you allow your attorney to handle any interaction with the insurance company. You are paying your attorney to represent you in this matter. The last thing you want to do is inadvertently cause problems for the claim moving forward. Good Luck.
