The Law of Medical Malpractice is a concise, yet detailed text that takes the student from a brief history of civil liability for professional malfeasance to the anatomy of a lawsuit and the medical malpractice trial. Divided into two main components, the text first follows the history and development of medical malpractice in the United States, and then covers the process of litigation from both sides in the case. Effective learning features include assignments designed to integrate information from each chapter into a realistic situation. Sample medical records, definitions of medical and legal terminology, and sample legal forms are provided to enhance student comprehension of key concepts. The many applications are based on true cases and provide an accurate depiction of medical malpractice as it exists today. This balanced text is a thorough presentation of the area of law known as medical malpractice.
