Jury awards in liability cases are often unpredictable and may exceed the doctor/defendant ’ s liability coverage. Most doctors do not realize they or their corporation are responsible for the excess verdict amount (i.e., reward amount above the maximum malpractice limits). For example, if the doctor has a $1 million policy limit and a judgment against the doctor is $2.5 million, the doctor is responsible for the excess $1.5 million. For doctors concerned about excess verdicts, policy limits may be raised to $3 million or $5 million. It is highly recommended that if a doctor/defendant has a case that may potentially result in an excess verdict, personal counsel should be retained to safeguard the interests of the defendant dentist.
