THE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE TRIAL FROM THE DOCTOR’s POV
[From First Service – to Final Verdict and Emotional Relief]
“Even among the sciences, medicine occupies a special position. Its practitioners come into direct and intimate contact with people in their daily lives; they are present at the critical transitional moments of existence.
For many people, they are the only contact with a world that otherwise stands at a forbidding distance. Often in pain, fearful of death, the sick have a special thirst for reassurance and vulnerability to belief.”
[Source: Paul Starr – The Social Transformation of American Medicine, Basic Books].
When this trust is violated, whether rooted in factual substance or merely a conclusion lacking in reality, American jurisprudence offers several remedies with the core being civil litigation.
For example, we have personally witnessed a spectrum of reasons that prompts a patient to seek the counsel of an attorney. Whether it be an untoward result of treatment or surgery, an outstanding invoice being mailed to a less than happy patient who decides that the doctor did not measure up to expectations, a physician’s wife employed as the office manager charging a patient $50 to complete a medical leave authorization form, or simply a perceived lack of concern on the part of the doctor or personnel, patients can be motivated to seek redress outside the realm of the doctor’s office.
Compound any of the above scenarios with well-meaning friends and family and the proverbial prescription for litigation has been certified. Woven throughout this discourse will be suggestions that might obviate the foregoing. While it is not a panacea, nor a cure-all for medical negligence cases, we believe it to be an effective methodology for resolving those differences that see the growth of a medical malpractice lawsuit …. honest communications.
