As reported in Reuter’s Health Information, Medical Malpractice cases are usually won by the defendant.

When there is any doubt after hearing all the evidence and expert opinions, juries usually return a verdict in favor of the physician, study author Philip G. Peters, from the University of Missouri-Columbia’s School of Law, said in a statement.

Peters reached this conclusion after conducting an extensive review of studies of malpractice cases from 1989 to 2006. The studies included cases involving all medical specialties and assessed expert medical opinions as well as the merits of the claims.
