LLP 184: What Happens When Your Doctor Gets Sued


What To do When Your Doctor Gets Sued …

Medscape conducted research in which doctors from various specialties were questioned. They were asked if they have been sued. Interestingly, 60% of individuals who answered this Medscape poll have been sued at least once. And if the doctors were at least 60 years or older, that number increased to 80%.

In this episode, we will discuss an important topic: “What Happens When Your Doctor Is Sued.” I will be recounting my own experience with my first case.

Today we are taught and reminded that doctors aren't obliged to be perfect, nor are they expected to be. We're just required to give the patient our best effort. I want to inform you that if the physician got sued, it doesn't make them bad.
