How can I find out if a doctor has been previously sued for malpractice?
You can check with the Board of Medical Examiners in your state. Most states will publish if a doctor has been reprimanded in the past. A way to determine if a doctor has been sued would be to check in the Clerk’s Office in the County or District where the doctor lives or practices. Sometimes, lawsuits may have been filed in the Federal Court.
