Abstract

Nowadays, society expects individuals to arrive at health institutions as soon as possible in the event of any illness, to diagnose their disease and to have treatment before the disease. In this process, it is not legally acceptable for doctors to cause illness as a result of misdiagnosis and treatment. Legal sanctions are imposed on health institutions and doctors due to the damages caused by erroneous and imperfect behaviors of doctors' professional practices which are called as medical malpractice. As a result of the damages that may arise during the professional activities of the health sector employees, insurance companies provide guarantees to doctors under the title of "Doctor Professional Liability Insurance" in order to provide doctors professional protection shield and to work with confidence and peace. Exclusively professional activities arising from a contract which installs both sides and containing debt "Physicians Professional Liability Insurance" has become mandatory as of July 30, 2010 in Turkey.
