Doctor Looks for Medical Malpractice Lawyer

This article is a little old, but it is an interesting story of one doctor’s struggle to find a medical malpractice lawyer to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against her doctor.

No one talks about this tragedy: victims who cannot bring a malpractice lawsuit only because the economics of medical malpractice cases do not allow lawyers to take cases where the injuries are not extreme.

The article includes a very poorly worded quote from medical malpractice lawyer: “What are her losses — maybe $50,000? I can’t afford to take a case that recovers $50,000. My expenses would likely be more than the recovery. She’s out of luck.” True statement, I guess. Awful way to put it.
