Malpractice

AAOE opposses any attempts to disadvantage physicians and medical practices in a malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice law is an important aspect of the American healthcare system. Laws governing medical malpractice are generally promulgated by the state legislatures meaning that each state differs in how its citizens can sue physicians in the states.

Consumer interest groups have been pushing for changes to these malpractice laws to make it easier for patients to sue their physicians.
