Less than half of CT medical malpractice claims resulted in payments to patients

Hartford Courant, June 14, 2010
A state analysis of medical malpractice claims handled by Connecticut insurance companies in the past four years showed that 48% resulted in payment to patients. Fewer claims were reported last year compared to 2008, and the average payment to patients also decreased. The report, released by the Connecticut Insurance Department analyzed 2,839 closed claims reported in the fourth quarter of 2005, and from 2006 to 2009.
