Misplaced Fears Lead Many Victims to Avoid Malpractice Suits

Posted by Alvin Wolff | May 10, 2015 | 0 Comments

Although it may be true that “to err is human,” when that error puts lives in danger, it needs to be addressed. Sadly, even though victims of mistakes by doctors or other healthcare workers have the right to pursue medical malpractice claims, many fear that filing a claim against a doctor or hospital could make their lives worse. A common concern that many malpractice victims have is that—if they pursue a claim—hospitals, insurance companies, and doctors will retaliate, causing more harm. They fear that:

  • If other doctors learn of their claims, they'll refuse treatment for fear of being sued.
  • By pursuing a claim, their health insurance will see them as a risk and raise their premiums.
  • The cost of pursuing the claim will be higher than any settlement they may receive.
