Editorial Reviews

Review

" This excellent and thorough book on malpractice should be on every practicing physician's bookshelves." (Doody's, 2 March 2012)

 

From the Back Cover

Getting sued for medical malpractice is one of the most traumatic events of a physician's career.

This book will guide physicians through the process, from the moment they receive a summons until the after-trial appeal process;

Author Ilene R. Brenner, M.D. arms the reader with strategies to maximize their chances of a defendant's verdict.

How To Survive a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit:

  • Contains valuable information that health care providers need to know to prevent making critical mistakes that can hurt their case.
  • Includes guidance on vital topics such as conflicts of interest, decisions to settle, how to change your attorney, and optimizing your deposition and cross-examination performance.
  • Provides critical material to help prevent a lawsuit, how to cope with the emotional strain, with many sample deposition and cross examination questions and tips on answering them, plus detailed descriptions on the in-court process such as when to show up for court, how a jury is picked, and how to dress appropriately

Navigate through what is a mysterious and terrifying process with a medical malpractice survival book written by a doctor for doctors in non-legalese language that is easy to understand.


More About the Author

Ilene R. Brenner, M.D. is a board certified Emergency Physician in Atlanta, Georgia. She's also adjunct faculty at Emory University School of nursing.

The first physician in her family, Dr. Brenner actually comes from two generations of attorneys. She credits her choice of medicine as a profession to the lively discussions of her father's medical malpractice cases, as he currently is a practicing defense trial attorney in medical malpractice. And it is these discussions that led to her active participation in assisting him with a number of his cases and provided the necessary background to write her book "How to Survive a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit."

In addition to this published book, Dr. Brenner spends much of her spare time after college writing: poetry, novels, screenplays, articles as well as a number of nonfiction works.

Format: Paperback
Any physician who has ever been served a malpractice claim knows how very frightening the experience can be. From that moment, you suffer enormous anxiety until, and even beyond, the ultimate resolution of your case. When a subpoena strikes, many people wish they had a lawyer in the family, but few are so fortunate. However, there is one way that every physician can be armed in advance for what is nowdays an almost inevitable experience: Get a map.

How to Survive a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit: The Doctor's Roadmap for Success (Wiley) by Dr. Ilene Brenner is one of the best books I have read on the subject. As a litigation stress specialist, I've read more than my share in this genre and put this volume in a class with the excellent, if under-utilized, Adverse Events, Stress and Litigation, by Sara Charles and Paul Frisch (Oxford, 2005). Both books have as principal authors, physicians who have been directly harmed by malpractice litigation. What distinguishes these two from others on the topic is that these authors have transcended the experience and are able to dispense a wealth of practical advice untainted by rancor.
Dr. Brenner is an EP and child of a med-mal defense attorney, so her writing reflects a lifetime of vicarious experiences. Dr. Charles, on the other hand, is a psychiatrist and well-known authority on the phenomenon of malpractice litigation stress. It's no surprise, then, that Brenner focuses on the practical approach to litigation while Charles attends more to physicians' emotional needs. Brenner does not ignore the psychology - with a degree in the subject herself she aptly devotes an entire chapter to the topic.

Format: Paperback
Dr Brenner has written a book from which all physicians can gain a better understanding of the malpractice system. She has a unique perspective in that she is a practicing physician with medico-legal experience. The book is easy to read and I appreciate the glossary of legal terminology. Even if you have not been sued, this is a great book to read. Every physician should have this book on their shelf.
