Another Peddler of Garbage Science in Suicide Litigation

In this review, the lawyer on the defense side,

1) fails to state the vast majority of suicide claims are weak or frivolous, and the defense bar is doing nothing to deter the plaintiff bar;

2) there is no correlation between the quality and extensiveness of records correlates with harm to patients. The sole aim of these lawyer rules and regulations is to intimidate the clinician;

3) the standard assessment in articles, guidelines cited are garbage science. No promulgator of such assessment has been able to provide evidence they have ever prevented a suicide.
