A term used in professional liability insurance indicating that given certain
circumstances presenting above-average exposure to claims, professionals should
carefully evaluate whether to accept a prospective case or client. For
example, if a prospective patient has a history of suing other doctors or if
several other lawyers have turned down a particular case, the respective doctor/lawyer
in these scenarios should think twice about the efficacy of accepting the client/case.
