A new study has revealed that not all litigated plastic surgery cases have an equal chance of ruling in favor of the defense or plaintiff. The study identified at least five different determinants which increase the chances of ruling in favor of one side or the other.
The study, titled ‘An Analysis of Malpractice Litigation and Expert Witnesses in Plastic Surgery’ (2017), was conducted by Paul Therattil et al. and reviewed 93 litigated plastic surgery cases from the Westlaw legal database. It analyzed them according to expert witness testimony, procedure type, alleged injury, and verdict, among other factors. Correlations were then drawn between these factors, in particular which of them led to rulings in favor of the defense or plaintiff.
