Malpractice Information

Some studies have shown that there is no significant correlation between malpractice history and a physician's competence. At the same time, the Board believes that consumers should have access to malpractice information. In these profiles, the Board has given you information about both the malpractice history of the physicians currently practicing in the physician's specialty and the individual physician's history of payments. The Board has placed payment amounts into three statistical categories: below average, average, and above average, based on the payments made by physicians currently practicing in the physician’s specialty. To make the best health care decisions, you should view this information in perspective. You could miss an opportunity for high quality care by selecting a physician based solely on malpractice history.

When considering malpractice data, please keep in mind:

  • Malpractice histories tend to vary by specialty. Some specialties are more likely than others to be the subject of litigation.
  • This report reflects malpractice payments made in Massachusetts reported to the Board by Massachusetts medical malpractice insurers. You should take into account how long the physician has been in practice when considering the number of payments made.
  • The incident causing the malpractice claim may have happened years before a payment is finally made. Sometimes, it takes a long time for a malpractice lawsuit to move through the legal system.
  • Some physicians work primarily with high risk patients. These physicians may have malpractice histories that are higher than average because they specialize in cases or patients who are at very high risk for problems.
  • Settlement of a claim may occur for a variety of reasons which do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the physician. A payment in settlement of a medical malpractice action or claim should not be construed as creating a presumption that medical malpractice has occurred.

The payment average(s) below reflect payments made by physicians currently practicing in the specialty. You may wish to discuss information provided in this report, and malpractice generally, with your physician.

The categorization of malpractice payments reflects how that payment compares with payments made in that specialty by physicians with an active license, not physicians licensed at the time the payment was made.
