Texas Medical Board
Tort Reform dramatically changed the medical liabiilty landscape. With the diminution of lawsuits came an increase in State Medical Board complaints and investigations. Time limits are short and the risks are substantial. Appearing before an ISC panel can be daunting with devastating consequences. The Board can increase your CME requirements, impose public sanctions and fines, issue public reprimands, monitor your practice, or even revoke your license. If you are notified of a State Medical Board complaint, do not attempt to handle it yourself. Get legal counsel immediately.
Did you know the Board can presume meritorious any lawsuit settled for $50,000 or more? Were you aware that if you have three such settlements within five years you can be sanctioned for that alone? Did you know that three lawsuit filings within a five year period triggers a State Board investigation? These provisions exist and are enforced. Do not take them lightly. Call us.
