Malpractice Records for WALTER ALLEN BONNEY, JR.

Consumers should take the following factors into consideration when evaluating a physician's competence from malpractice data.
  • A number of studies have been conducted to identify indicators of substandard care among physicians. There is no conclusive evidence that malpractice data correlates with professional competence.
  • There are a variety of factors unrelated to professional competence or conduct which affect the likelihood that a physician will be the subject of a malpractice claim, such as, the physician's time in practice, the nature of the specialty, the types of patients treated, geographic location, etc. For example, certain medical specialties have a higher rate of malpractice claims because of a higher risk inherent to the field of practice.
  • Settlements of malpractice cases by insurance companies are sometimes handled as business decisions. In the case of some minor claims, it is less expensive for the insurance company to make a monetary settlement than it is for them to take the case to court. Many times such cases are settled without a finding of fault or admission of guilt on the part of the physician.
  • A payment in settlement of a medical malpractice action or claim should not be construed as creating a presumption that medical malpractice has occurred.
