Low Risk of Medmal in Psychiatry

Reviewed here.

This program has Lilly as a sponsor. They make Zyprexa. Perhaps, sales have dropped from fear of litigation. Lilly would be interested in getting this message out.

I have been sued several times. In every case, I had given superior care, and achieved the aim of treatment.

I made mistakes that injured patients. I would have settled in those cases had I been sued. Never sued for any real mistakes.

This lawyer is not making the obvious point. The vast majority of cases are weak or frivolous. She would go out of the legal defense business if someone were to deter the land pirates, or made them do their job properly.
