Adverse Events, Stress, and Litigation

A Physician's Guide

Sara C. Charles, M.D. and Paul R. Frisch, J.D.
Illustrated by Ronald Bailey

Bad medical outcomes traumatize patients but they also traumatize physicians. Although every physician's case is different, this book shows how each goes through the same judicial stages of complaint, discovery, depositions, motions, and delays that lead to trial, settlement, or being dropped. Written by a physician and a lawyer, the book provides unique insights - through real-life stories - into the personal experience of litigation as well as sound recommendations for dealing with each stage of the legal process.
