Medical-legal consultant Randine Lewis provides lawyers with basic instruction in the practice of modern medicine, and introduces health care professionals to the process of litigation. Her goal is not to incite frivolous or excessive legal actions; instead, she hopes to enable people on both sides of a legal issue to understand how the other side will proceed toward obtaining some kind of redress. Lewis maintains that medical knowledge is lacking in most law firms and her book seeks to remedy that. With the basics of medicine clearly laid out and the risks inherent in medical treatment explained, hew book will be a hands-on desk reference not only in law offices but also in medical and health care occupations. Well illustrated, with examples, lists, and medical terms clearly explained, the book will also be useful to paralegals, nurses, consultants, and other professionals who become involved in litigation involving health care.
