Description

The Charleston Gazette reviews thousands of malpractice claims filed against doctors in West Virginia from 1993 to 2001. The findings exposed how exaggerated the West Virginia State Medical Association's complaints about "the frequency and severity" of "mostly meritless" claims against doctors were. The series revealed that a major malpractice insurer had a "secret, 120,000-a-year marketing and lobbying agreement" with the medical association.
