Utah Medical Malpractice Cases: What Are The Challenges?

By Ryan Springer • May 31, 2014 • Filed in: Medical Malpractice, Medical Malpractice Myths, Personal Injury

Medical malpractice victims are treated as second-class citizens by Utah law. As a result, only a handful of law firms still handle these cases, and even fewer are successful. The odds favor the doctors and hospitals because the Utah State Legislature has enacted special laws to protect negligent doctors at the urging of powerful medical lobbyists. The doctor and hospital insurance company lobbies have made it expensive and difficult for patients to bring suit.

Additionally, lawyers for malpractice victims have limits placed on their fees. On the other hand, there is no limit on what medical malpractice insurance companies can pay lawyers to defend doctors, hospitals, chiropractors and other health professionals — indeed, they can spend millions of dollars to defend bad doctors, hospitals, Intermountain Health Care, and other health providers when they are guilty of inexcusable wrongdoing, paying victims nothing.
