This course has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
Medical malpractice cases are among the most complex personal injury cases to litigate. This "Medical Malpractice 101" course will provide a 360 degree review of medical malpractice litigation from inception through trial. We will examine when to pursue certain cases and even more importantly when to reject a case.
We will discuss how to identify the proper parties and the appropriate standard of care. We will then focus on how to prepare a case pre-suit and pre-trial, focusing on avoiding common pitfalls. This course will examine finding quality expert witnesses and preparation before trial. We will also discuss cross-examining physician defendants and experts at deposition and trial.
Finally, we will review the anatomy of a medical malpractice trial from jury selection to summation.
