Settlement of Med/Mal Claim Could Cause EP Unexpected Problems
Once an EP defendant settles a malpractice claim, multiple reporting requirements and other repercussions result. These may include:
- an investigation by the state medical board;
- sanctions if the EP fails to report a settlement in another state;
- a competency assessment;
- removal from insurance panels.
A quick settlement can seem very appealing to any EP defendant facing protracted litigation, but EPs should be aware of the repercussions.
