My risk for an above policy limit malpractice judgment is one in 20,000. A listener asked me how I came up with that number as he is in a different specialty and wanted to figure out what his risk is. In this episode I share where to find the numbers to figure out your risk for being sued above the policy limits. But the truth is the vast majority of above policy limit judgments are reduced on appeal to policy limits. If you are worried about an above policy limit judgment realize that it is possible but the chances are pretty low. If this is something you worry about, listening to this episode will help calm that fear. If this isn't something that worries you, we also cover other listener questions in this episode. I address whether to investor or pay off debt during this bear market, shopping for disability insurance, what to do with a 457 from an old employer, starting a side gig, variable withdrawal rates, HSAs, and my experience owning single stocks.
