GPs defended successfully in four out of five negligence claims


Can anyone explain to me why we cannot issue a counter claim to recover our costs? Is there anything in law to stop this - the claims culture seems to be doing an awful lot of damage to the NHS and effectively these law firms are getting a free ride. Is it the GMC stopping it or are we just being played?
