They do indeed smell blood in the water but the incident rates for the DaVinci are not any worse than normal surgery. I was at my doc yesterday and he has studied this very closely and he said, surgeons make mistakes. Once these lawyers get hospitals to tell them their incidence rates they will find the DaVinci is actually better. They will be forced to go find someone else to sue.
This is no different than the lawyers that tried to sue Chipotle for hiring illegal workers. There were over 10 of those ambulance chasers going after CMG once the ICE investigations started. Nothing ever came of it and they moved on.
