If I Sue, Will My Doctor Lose Their License?
Do you ever feel like you do not want to be like one of those people who sues? If so, you’re not alone. It’s one of the most common comments we hear when we first meet with clients. But, in fact, there’s nothing wrong with bringing a malpractice claim against a doctor under our system of laws. In fact, that doctor has malpractice insurance to cover malpractice claims, just as a driver has automobile insurance to cover them if they run a red light and hit your automobile. And, just like the driver who hits your automobile after running a red light is still entitled to drive an automobile and does not lose their license to drive, if you bring a malpractice claim against a doctor and you are successful, the malpractice insurance will cover that claim, and it is unlikely the doctor will lose their license.
