Conversation with a Doctor Who Wanted to file Malpractice Suit
John Day is one of the most well-known medical malpractice attorneys in Tennessee. He is also one of the leaders in our profession when it comes to exploding the myths and misimpressions that underlie much of society’s false assumptions about medical malpractice lawsuits.
In his blog post today over at Day on Torts, John details a conversation he had with a doctor who came in wanting to file a medical malpractice action in connection with the wrongful death of his father. The conversation (and John’s commentary) is quite enlightening, and it details quite nicely the challenges, risks, and assumptions that must be overcome by lawyers and/or litigants in this arena. I highly recommend taking a few moments to read it.
