There are all sorts of opportunities for lawyers to earn your eternal hatred
- and substantial attorney's fees - and sue everybody and their grandmother
if any of these epxeriments go seriously wrong,
and they can blame it on a licensed physician.
USAmerican health care legislation is designed to maximize
administrative and legal overhead.
Slipping silicone into a boob is safe because it's a routine procedure
- and I mean this less in a medical, but a legal malpractice suit way.
