Medical Malpractice Law Firm with 40 Years’ Experience

hospital-3Medical malpractice is a controversial issue nationwide, pitting doctors and hospitals against lawyers and patients in a he-said, she-said battle over healthcare providers’ responsibility, the cost of malpractice insurance, and so-called “tort reform” measures in states that limit recoveries for devastating harm inflicted upon victims of medical malpractice.

The New England Journal of Medicine in January 2016 cited a study indicating that one percent of all doctors in the United States account for nearly a third of all paid medical malpractice claims.

Analysis of ten years of paid malpractice claims in the National Practitioner Data Bank, a federal government database of 66,426 medical malpractice claims filed against 54,099 physicians, concludes that:

  • Doctors with more than one claim already were likely to have multiple subsequent paid claims;
  • Orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons were twice as likely to have a paid claim than internists;
  • Male doctors had a 38 percent higher risk of repeated claims than women doctors;
  • Physicians under 35 were a third less likely to have recurring malpractice claims than their older peers.

David M. Studdert, the study’s lead author and a professor of law and medicine at Stanford University, said, “Ninety-four percent of all doctors have no claims. But doctors who accumulate multiple claims are a problem, and a threat to the health care system. Identifying these high-risk doctors is a key first step toward doing something about the problem.”

Fortunately, the trial attorneys at Searcy Denney have more than 40 years’ experience representing victims of medical malpractice and can point to hundreds of settlement and jury verdicts on behalf of their clients.
