Organizations operating in the life sciences arena face a unique risk landscape and need insurance protection that has been designed by experts for their specific needs.
The risks can come in many forms ranging from unsafe products and causing pollution to negligence in clinical trials. The liability on those responsible when things go wrong can be significant and the challenges are growing with an increasingly litigious world, new regulation and greater dependency on technologies. Beazley’s underwriters and claims team have a deep understanding of life sciences and have created a broad, flexible policy to meet the current and emerging needs
of the sector.
The Beazley BioSecure product offers life science organizations a flexible, innovative and client-focused approach to underwriting this class of risk. Click here to view our BioSecure brochure.

On occasion, companies may hire a CRO to conduct clinical trials on their behalf. CROs face not only a vicarious product liability exposure, but also malpractice (failure to follow the manufacturer’s directions, or protocol, causing injury) and/or errors and omissions exposures (improper filing of the results, resulting in rejection or delay in drug approval, causing financial loss). We understand the unique risks that these CROs face and have developed a specialized CRO professional liability policy that gives them the financial loss protection they need in addition to medical malpractice coverage.
