The health care industry’s legal risks and financial exposure have increased as the frequency and severity of claims continues to climb, the cause of which lies, in part, in service lapses and communication failures among health care providers, staff and the patients they treat. These important concepts directly impact whether the recipients of health care seek the services of a plaintiff’s lawyer, whether a claim will be pursued and, ultimately, what will happen in the courtroom.
