Study shows that most doctors will face malpractice lawsuits in career
According to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, most doctors will be sued for medical malpractice during some point in their career.
Some officials think that the threat of being sued is what leads doctors to practice what is known at “defensive medicine.” This means that extra tests are ordered to make sure that the diagnosis given is the correct one.
According to researchers, nearly 99 percent of doctors in medical fields that are considered high-risk will be involved in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Even in fields that are less risky, nearly 75 percent of doctors are sued.
