More on My Personal Experience With a Malpractice Case

This month’s focus is on professional liability, especially medical liability. The articles by Drs. Ananth, Cammarata and Lieb, and by Dr. Biggs and Ms. McClure, J.D., are informative and timely. I especially like the article by Dean F. Connors, M.D., “The Process and Evolution of a Lawsuit.” While the first two articles are significant for the knowledge they provide, Dr. Connors’ column is a nuts-and-bolts presentation of how a lawsuit will progress. This one rings home to me, based on my previous experience.
My lawsuit has been previously discussed (see my editorial “A Fright-ening Letter,” in the February 2013 ASA NEWSLETTER). Still, I would like to reiterate one point and present some new thoughts that came to mind as I read Dr. Connors’ piece.
