What is clinical trial insurance?

Clinical trial insurance is an essential component of any medical research programme. It offers financial protection to both the researchers conducting the trial and the volunteers who are taking part, should unforeseen problems arise as a result. Usually, clinical trial insurance is a regulatory requirement so it’s important your policy provides a suitable level of cover for your needs.

Here at Gallagher, we offer comprehensive clinical trials insurance coverage. We will work with you, quickly and efficiently, to ensure you have protection against potential risks and regulatory oversight. Our policy certificates can be issued within 24 hours, subject to satisfactory receipt of all the required underwriting information.
