GDB Law Practical Guides: Asset Protection for Doctors
We live in a litigious society, where patients routinely sue doctors for alleged medical malpractice. There is no risk to bring a lawsuit against a doctor on contingency, and patients are incentivized to sue because doctors are viewed as “deep pockets.” Doctors who engage in asset protection before the threat from the patient are in a more favorable position to retain their assets.Therefore, ideal asset protection is prophylactic, which helps to deter the patient’s threat. Asset protection discourages such suits because even if the lawsuits are successful, the doctor’s assets will be immune from seizure.
