Kaiser's Medical Malpractice Resources

Medical Malpractice Law in the United States is a Kaiser Family Foundation report that provides an overview of the issues surrounding medical malpractice law, including the legal changes that states have made over the past 30 years in response to periodic concerns about rising medical malpractice costs; some newer proposals for changing medical malpractice law; and trend data for malpractice claims. While this report is from 2005, it provides excellent background info.
