    Perhaps, Arthur E. Lyons MD's comments would be less ironic if he wasn't listed under ALM Experts as a forensic expert testifying in court cases. Also, perhaps he should read the New England Journal of Medicine article which found that medical malpractice is UNDER-reported, UNDER-litigated and UNDER-paid, wherein a blind review of cases, by medical experts found that there was negligence, but a jury found for the Defendant. It IS an honest living to protect innocent victims from other people's misconduct; whether that other person is a driver, a business owner, or a doctor, no one should be free to injure others by their misconduct and failure to follow the rules of safety.

    Plaintiff attorneys will have to resort an honest living if things continue on in this direction.
