You always knew it could happen. Statistically, you knew it WOULD happen sometime in your career. Now there’s a registered letter on your desk, from a law office, and you’re afraid to open it. You summon up the courage to read it, and find that a patient you’ve done your best for has decided to sue. As far as you recall, there wasn’t even a bad outcome, but you must’ve missed something, because there’s this letter on your desk informing you that they’ve been retained by your patient, and requiring records as part of their fact-finding. Now what?
In some ways, it’s the same as if you’d been involved in an auto accident. You contact your medical malpractice insurance carrier, right? But then what? What else?
