The settlement of a medical malpractice action may
occur for a variety of reasons that do not necessarily
reflect negatively on the professional competence
or conduct of the doctor. A payment in settlement
of a medical malpractice action does not create a
presumption that medical malpractice occurred.
Prior to 1999, "Advisory Letters" were known
as "Letters of Concern"
