Medical Malpractice Insurance


Trusted MedMal Cover

The surge in medical malpractice claims in South Africa has led to a notable rise in premiums imposed by insurers annually.

Our brokerage specialises in securing outstanding products from top insurers, supported by world-renowned reinsurers. We possess the capability to procure coverage for both individuals and groups.

No matter what discipline you practice in, we offer a tailor-made solution for you.

We provide a claims-made insurance policy that activates coverage when a claim is filed against our client during the policy period, irrespective of when the alleged wrongful act occurred, subject to the retroactive date outlined in the policy.

Key features of our product include:

  • A leading Claims Made insurance policy backed by Munich Re & Swiss Re, the world’s largest Re-insurers.
  • Highly competitive premiums for claims made policies.
  • Flexible indemnity limits allowing for customisation to suit your needs.
  • Tailored excess options, including the possibility of a zero excess, to align with your budget.
  • Automatic 60-month extended reporting period (ERP) for insured practitioners who have maintained coverage with us for 36 consecutive months or more, with the potential for further extension at the discretion of Underwriters.
  • Access to our in-house team of attorneys and/or medico-legal advisors, providing assistance with any inquiries or concerns you may have.

Why Choose Shackleton Risk Management?

At Shackleton Risk Management, we're driven by a clear purpose: to revolutionise the insurance landscape for the betterment of our clients. Our mission is to demystify a traditionally complex area, particularly to the detriment of South Africa's working professionals.

For far too long, liability insurance has been controlled by major insurers, operating with minimal transparency regarding product functionality and necessity for professionals. The shadow of corporate pressure has loomed large, resulting in professionals either overpaying for unnecessary coverage or remaining loyal to established providers due to fear of change, ultimately resulting in excessive indemnity costs.

Our aim is simple: to challenge this outdated norm. We empower professionals to understand and trust their coverage, ensuring they pay only for what they truly need, enabling them to concentrate on their respective professions with confidence.
