What can medical malpractice plaintiffs learn from the Michigan Model?

Medical malpractice, as Michigan readers know, plays an important role in helping injured patients and the survivors of deceased patients recover damages from losses stemming from provider negligence. The ability to pursue litigation is something patients should have greater awareness of and appreciation for, since litigation offers the opportunity to hold a potentially dangerous physician accountable.

Court decision challenges long-established medical malpractice exemption

A recent ruling by a federal appeals court has put cruise lines on notice that they could be held fully responsible for medical malpractice if their medical staff fails to take proper care of their guests. Significantly, in coming to the decision, the appeals court reversed over 100 years of law which provided exemptions for cruise lines from being held accountable for medical malpractice committed by on-board healthcare providers.

Reduction in preventable errors tied to insurance trend

According to a recent report by the Department of Health and Human Services, there has been a decrease in preventable medical errors in recent years, to the tune of 17 percent. Because of this, the report noted, fewer patients have died and there has been savings in the cost of health care. This data concerns the period from 2010 to 2013.
