Tort reform is the only way to reduce risk of a lawsuit
“Got malpractice distress? You can help yourself survive,” by Sara C. Charles, MD
The good Dr. Charles has obviously never been sued, or she wouldn’t have given us the same advice she gives children who are reprimanded for doing something wrong. There is no way to ease the pain of a lawsuit, frivolous or not. The statistics are staggering, and the effects of malpractice litigation are far more disabling than she makes out.
