The success of most medical malpractice lawsuits depends on assistance from medical professionals in building and supporting your case. Unfortunately, a report in the New England Journal of Medicine has found that many healthcare professionals are unwilling to testify against their colleagues.
Various reasons were cited by the medical professionals contacted for the research published in the NEJM, but the bottom line often came down to money. A majority of respondents stated they feared a loss of referrals or other professional repercussions, which combined to make them unwilling to testify against their peers.
