Kevin, M.D. pointed me to an insider's look at how doctors view medical malpractice trials which appeared in the The Olympian online. This is a must read for all medical malpractice lawyers and health care providers. I hear similar trial stories from the litigators in our firm's professional liability practice group.
Also the article points out a point that I often make -- that is -- the impact of "going through a trial" has on a doctor -- regardless of the merits of the case. The article also highlights the issue so often wrapped up in many medical malpractice cases: bad outcome vs. medical negligence.
