When looking for a new doctor, it’s important to choose someone you
trust. In addition to collecting recommendations from friends and family,
it’s also a good idea to see if the doctor you’re considering
has been sued for
medical malpractice.

Other tips to learning whether a healthcare provider has been named a liable
party in a lawsuit include:

  • calling the county clerk’s office where the physician practices;
  • calling the state licensing medical board;
  • calling the state insurance department; and
  • searching
    Administrators in Medicine for your potential physician.

It’s not uncommon for a doctor who’s been in practice a long
time to have been sued before, but if you see more than one case, you
should probably see someone else.
