Our case studies are based on actual TMLT medical malpractice claims. These closed claim studies are provided to help physicians improve patient safety and reduce potential liability risks that may arise when treating patients.They illustrate how actions or inactions by physicians led to allegations of medical liability and how risk management techniques may have either prevented the outcome or increased the physician's defensibility. The ultimate goal in publishing these studies is to help physicians and other health care professionals practice safe medicine.


TMLT's closed claim studies are a physician favorite across all specialties. Other health care professionals, such as registered nurses or group administrators, have also found educational value in these publications. While certain claim allegations may be limited to specific medical specialties, errors in documentation, prescriptions, diagnoses, and communication may occur across all medical specialties.
