Many people do not like the idea of suing a doctor or hospital. However, just like any other professional, physicians are held to high standards (even more so as people’s lives are on the line) and should be held accountable when preventable mistakes cause patients harm. The idea that medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed for frivolous reasons is completely untrue. A lawsuit can only be filed if experts in the same field of medicine review the case and file an affidavit under oath that a preventable mistake has been made.
