What is a typical claims/litigation process like?
Every situation is different, so there really isn’t a typical process. The MagMutual claims professional assigned to your case can advise you on what to expect.
How do I become a peer support partner for the Doctor2Doctor program?
Peer support partners are typically invited by MagMutual to be part of the program. Physicians who have gone all the way through the trial process to a verdict are considered as candidates, and we reach out to those we feel would make the best fit to invite them to training.

Please report the incident as soon as you become aware that the patient is unsatisfied with the outcome. See “How do I report a claim or incident?”
Can I request to settle a claim?
Yes. Upon receipt of the claim, one of our claims professionals will contact you to discuss the incident as well as your options for defense or settlement.

What constitutes an incident?
An incident is an unexpected outcome or other situation in which we feel it is unlikely the patient or family representative will require further action. Our assessment unit thoroughly reviews every reported incident and may contact you for more information or to ensure no additional response is needed. In some cases, we may utilize the Preserve Program. Incidents that don’t lead to claims will automatically close within 90 days.
