Doctors vs. Lawyers - Round XIVIXIVIXIVIV 

Some more information on malpractice claims, premium rates, and the neverending clash of the professions.

Download the paper from SSRN here.

The paper is the product of data analysis by 4 law professors, including the University of Texas's own professors Black and Silver.

Basically, it demonstrates that since 1988, malpractice claims in our state have not changed at all, and small claims have actually declined. So why the rise of premiums, etc.?

My proposal: Instead of another round of Doctors vs. Lawyers, we do a round of Lawyers and Doctors vs. Insurance Companies.
