Use caution when discussing your malpractice case

You may be tempted to ask a physician friend to review your malpractice case to determine whether you are missing anything. Resist this temptation. The rules of malpractice cases do not give you the privilege to talk to anyone but your lawyer without having to share the contents of the discussion with the opposing side. If you discuss your case with a colleague who does not feel you acted appropriately, the plaintiff's attorney may subpoena your colleague to testify against you.
