LIA-020: Settlement of Frivolous Suits

Settlement of Frivolous Suits: The Wisconsin Medical Society believes that medical liability insurance companies should:

  • Not settle frivolous malpractice actions against physicians for reasons of fiscal expedience.
  • Aggressively pursue appropriate legal counteractions against those plaintiffs and/or their attorneys who commence, use or continue frivolous actions. (HOD, 0417)
