  • Overview

    Every year, 8-10% of doctors will be sued for malpractice. Many physicians who have been sued or watched a colleague go through litigation respond with defensive medicine, which some recent studies estimate costs the healthcare system as much as $350 billion dollars a year. Most solutions to this problem would involve changes at the federal legislative level. But host Shane Jackson's guest, board certified neurosurgeon and JD, Dr. Jeffrey Segal, talks about the experience of being sued, and his expertise in the areas of defensive medicine, frivolous lawsuits, frivolous testimony, and non-legislative solutions to these problems.
