Lawyers and Doctors have never had the best of relationships. While both are professional careers, the two often find themselves on opposing sides. An expert explains that lawyers do not trust doctors. This feud has been going on for a very long time and the Lawyers are always very cautious about what the doctors are actually doing.
Some people believe that doctors tried to hand pick judges which would be tough on medical malpractice cases. It has been suggested that the doctors were trying to find a judge who would be kind to the hospitals and doctors. Although the doctors argued that this wasn’t the cause, there is no proof either way.
The doctors made it possible to interview the candidates for the position without anyone else realizing what was happening. This was hoped to make it more difficult for any lawyer to sue hospitals and doctors for malpractice cases.
