Medical Malpractice in Crisis

Award Year: 2003 Investigator: Frank Sloan
Why are medical malpractice premiums and losses skyrocketing? This is just one of the questions that Frank A. Sloan, Ph.D. tackles in his Investigator Award project, Medical Malpractice in Crisis. Analyzing the malpractice crises of the 1970s, 1980s, and today, Dr. Sloan examines malpractice outcomes in four distinct markets: legal services, medical malpractice insurance, medical care, and government activity.
