Professional Casualty Association has selected lawyers with a longstanding history of successfully defending medical malpractice claims. Based on the geography of where the claim is brought, workload and specific areas of medicine, we make the best assignment for your situation. However, policyholders may request specific attorneys from our panel or use a different lawyer, if approved.
Our claims management philosophy consists of the following elements:
- Aggressive closure through prompt and thorough investigation of the facts
- Objective evaluation of liability
- Comprehensive analysis of damages
- Vigorous defense of unfounded claims as to coverage, liability or amount claimed
- Equitable settlement of meritorious claims
Whenever possible, efforts are made to resolve potential claim issues before litigation is brought.

So whenever a policyholder wishes to defend the medicine and treatment that he or she has provided, PCA will always be a willing and steadfast partner in defense of that claim.
We take that position for a very simple reason:
