Each of these subjects has its own hurdles to proving standard of care and causation. You need to know what fields of expert witnesses will be needed to get your case to the jury and persuade them of the virtues of your case. The defense will use different tactics in these different kinds of cases to try to derail your case and you will need to anticipate them. Learn the key medical issues that you will face and how best to handle them.
At this seminar you will hear from experienced medical malpractice lawyers addressing each of these topics and sharing with you their experience as to what works and what doesn’t. There is no need to reinvent the wheel with every new case.
