Doctor with 110 Medical Malpractice Suits Against Him

I’m not sure if this is a record, but if not it would seem to be awfully close. As per this article in the Charleston Gazette, the surgeon not only has 110 pending suits against him, but just lost his 3rd legal malpractice case against his lawyers.

It reminds me that in a recent study, 5.9 percent of U.S. doctors were found responsible for 57.8 percent of the number of medical malpractice payments.
