McCullough, Campbell & Lane Summary of Medical Malpractice Law
http://www.mcandl.com/introduction.html

McCullough, Campbell & Lane publishes a summary of U.S. medical malpractice law useful in analyzing medical malpractice risks in the U.S. The summary breaks down each state's medical malpractice law into subtopics, such as: statute of limitations, contributory or comparative negligence, joint and several liability, statutory caps on attorneys' fees, damage caps, and expert testimony. This summary of law was published in 1991 and last revised in 1998 so, although it is a useful starting place, it is necessary to update the information provided.
