As patients, we have high expectations for the nature and quality of doctors’ and medical professionals’ work—we don’t expect our doctors to make errors that actually cause us injury or illness. Unfortunately, when doctors or medical professionals do make mistakes, the consequences can be devastating—the repercussions can be difficult to face, and in some cases the individual is left with a permanent injury that will require a lifetime of care.
Because medical malpractice claims can be extremely costly to doctors and medical professionals—thus raising the cost of medical care to consumers across the board—insurance companies that insure doctors, hospitals and medical groups have lobbied hard in state legislatures in recent years to get laws passed that make it harder for people injured by medical mistakes to bring lawsuits against doctors or medical professionals.
When people do bring claims against doctors or medical professionals, the insurance companies fight them tooth and nail, often attempting to drag out claims, drive up costs and drive injured people out of court.
