The interesting part of watching from the outside from my perspective just as a person, not as a lawyer, watching a family struggle with their child, and it hits me uniquely, square in the head, that I think to myself – when the doctor is on the receiving end of a lawsuit, he or she doesn’t think about what that child’s life is like now. He or she doesn’t think, “My God. If I’d done my job right, this child wouldn’t have to go through all of this.” He or she doesn’t have to take the time to imagine what happens. All of us are human, and your self-defense mechanism kicks in and says, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” Sadly, in all the years that I’ve been doing this work, I have never once had a doctor testify under oath that they were responsible for causing harm to the patient, never once.
