Facts - Books - News    U.S. Facts Of Law:


Malpractice occurs when a professional fails to follow generally accepted standards of the profession.  It is most commonly thought of happening with respect to medical professionals, investment professionals, accountants and attorneys.  When a professional commits malpractice it results in a violation of trust and responsibility the professional has to his or her client.

When a medical professional commits malpractice, the health or even the life of the practitioner's patient may become at risk.  The medical profession and their insurers argue that the high costs of medical malpractice lawsuits in an ever complicated profession are driving up medical expenses for everyone.  Lawyers involved with medical malpractice cases, on the other hand, argue that patients deserve to be made whole again after the potential devastating results of malpractice by a medical professional.  They also claim that malpractice accountability has helped to make the U.S. healthcare system the best in the world.

While malpractice lawsuits against physicians and hospitals may result in more comprehensive healthcare, it also results in physicians ordering additional tests and procedures for legal reasons rather than for clinical reasons.  Occasionally, these extra tests turn out to be useful but much more often they are just an extra, unnecessary expense to the patient.  Estimates of the additional costs these unnecessary tests and procedures cost patients and their insurance companies approach $100 Billion annually.  Some argue that this additional cost is worth spending to have the world's best healthcare system.
