Malpractice misconceptions and other lessons about the litigation system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


This article sketches a picture of the behavior of the medical malpractice litigation system as it has been brought into view by recent, and some classical, empirical research. This review will, in part, report on knowledge concerning the malpractice litigation system, sharpen our appreciation of what remains to be learned, and serve as a model for other areas of civil litigation, which generally are not yet as well researched as malpractice. This growing body of empirical knowledge has cast increasing doubt on familiar assumptions and their policy implications.
