What if the Doctor I am Suing has a Partnership or a Professional Corporation?

If a member of a medical group commits malpractice, can you sue all of his partners, even though they had nothing to do with the mishap?  Yes.  The law holds that when a doctor benefits from another doctor’s actions, he can also be held responsible for them.  Since all members of the medical group benefit from the activities of every other member, they are all responsible for his malpractice, and it does not matter whether they have a partnership, or organized as a professional corporation (with the letters P.C. or P.A. after their names), or work together without any formal arrangement.
