Richard’s Answer

Depends on the location. Here in Texas, the legal climate is favorable to physicians. Texas is a state now known for tort reform. As part of this tort reform, several limits have been placed on the damages those injured by medical malpractice can receive. Most notably, with a law that took effect in 2003, damages for pain and suffering are now limited to $250,000 in most malpractice cases.

As all physician groups, most anesthesiologists will face a lawsuit during their career, they are not the most sued. According to recent studies, obstetricians/gynecologists (ob/gyns) and surgeons are most likely to be sued.
Never stop pursuing your dreams for fear of making a mistake.

Not necessarily. what is true is that they have the highest malpractice insurance because of the nature of their job.
