Administrative Information

Medical standards should be set by doctors. As Peter A. Corsale (Gallop, Johnson & Neuman, L.C.) and Michael Wong (Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety) write, “The alternative is dangerous. While medical journals and academia may wrestle with what constitutes the standard of care, at the end of a trial the average juror, who will have little if any medical training, will decide whether the defendant practitioner has met the standard of care. Thus, any evidence that shows that a breach of a standard of care resulted in some detriment to the patient is powerful, no matter how ‘weak’ it actually is.”
