The Preparation and Trial of Medical Malpractice Cases shows you how to treat a case as a continuous process, from interviewing the client to summing up your case. It offers comprehensive coverage of the questions surrounding health maintenance organizations, including case law on the right to sue an HMO as well as its participating physicians.
You’ll learn about how to recognize a meritorious case; the doctrine of alternative liability; the evidentiary value of FDA approval or nonapproval; the continuing treatment doctrine; state statutes regarding motion practice; malpractice liability of alternative medical practitioners; the admissibility of evidence comparing physicians’ risk statistics to those of other physicians; the modified standard of proximate cause when a physician’s negligence exacerbates a patient’s existing condition; violation of the duty to disclose information; contributory negligence in informed consent; distinguishing between medical malpractice and ordinary negligence; liability of nurses; and more.
The book includes appendices that demonstrate how to analyze a medical brief, depose and examine the defendant physician, and elicit testimony from your own expert witness.
