Three editorials/letters to the editor from the Baltimore Sun of interest to Maryland malpractice lawyers:
Robert E. Oshel on February 25, 2009
Wayne Willoughby on February 27, 2009
Dr. Nancy H. Nielsen on March 4, 2009
Dr Nielsen points out that a recent Harvard study shows that 40% of malpractice cases involve no medical error. In other words, 60% do. Maryland malpractice lawyers win on 11% of medical malpractice cases that go to a jury. Does this evidence tell us we need to limit juries because they are unreasonable? I find it odd this would be raised by an advocate of malpractice caps.
