A client’s hospital records can be exhausting for the attorney to peruse, yet success rests in the details, and properly organizing this data is critical to efficiently extracting the necessary information of a medical malpractice or personal injury case. In this course, attorneys Josh Silber and Richard Abend provide a detailed analysis from the plaintiff's perspective of the documentation relevant to such cases, and describe how best to search and cross-reference these documents so as to unearth revealing information.
