How long does one too to file a lawsuit for malpractise? I have thought of this on and off for a lontime . Maybe it is too late,but if Ducks refuse too treat ,they are breaking an oath,too do no harm.

Refusual of treatment is inflicting harm

Yes, indeed, Refusual of treatment is inflicting harm.


However, you have practically no chance to win a lyme malpractice suit due to the way the IDSA has set up the ridiculous requirements for diagnosis and also their outrageous treatment guidelines (saying that it should be cure in either 9 days or 3 weeks with one simple drug).


I think, in part, the IDSA's stance on lyme is really a tight little legal protective cocoon for all the doctors who have so grandly messed up.

--

All that said, a few years ago a patient somewhere in New England did win a similar case. However, the IDSA has since tightened this up so that it would be a miracle for someone to penetrate that.


If someone had the time, money and health, I'd say to go for it. However, these sorts of things can be all-encompassing at a time when all energy needs to be directed to healing.


You would probably first be filing against the "treating" doctor, based upon what he followed from your state medical board. Most likely, your state medical board's stance on lyme was, at that time, the same as the IDSA.


See, the literature that says lyme is a very serious illness is not even taught in medical schools. So, the doctors also have that protective device.
