I'm thinking of getting my Bachelors and going to law school. I'm also thinking of going to nursing school. Is going to law school an absolutely dumb idea at this point? [more inside]

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Texas is 10 years. Is there any legal option, then, for a case of gross malpractice that did not become known until nearly 30 years after the fact? [more inside]

What are some good resources for a new defense lawyer looking to learn a little about medicine?
My firm often defends companies in personal injury lawsuits, and I have been reviewing a lot of medical records lately. I have no background in medicine, and I want to gain a better understanding of the injuries I'm reading about - (mostly musculoskeletal injuries, often involving the back, knees, shoulders, etc.) and the surgeries done to correct them.
I'm looking for web resources, books, anything!
