Medical Malpractice Law for the Non-Personal Injury Attorney
About this Program
How should a real estate attorney respond when, on the verge of completing a transaction, the client announces that her husband suffered a massive heart attack and contends that the hospital did not treat the condition properly? What should a trusts and estate attorney do when a client comes in to probate a will and reports that the person who died bled to death because a shunt in his arm ruptured? With the contention that all attorneys must be prepared to respond to these facts regardless of their practice areas, Gerald Oginski dissects a medical malpractice case for the non medical malpractice attorney. Focus area include the effective evaluation of a potential case, the evaluation of a client, and the referral of case.
I. Evaluating a Possible Case

I've taken various CLE courses for over two decades and this one was, by far, the best I've ever viewed!
Excellent! This is what CLE should be - no sales plugs, no war stories, no question/answer sessions, just an engaging speaker with superior knowledge of his topic who delivers in a very well-organized manner.
Very good overall. Easy to follow, speaker did a good job of explaining medical law and framing the legal issues in malpractice cases in terms every lawyer could understand.
The examples were very interesting and oftentimes helpful.
I would recommend it to someone in New York. I would have liked more discussion about what things differ from state to state and how they might differ.
Very involved and engaging.

Compact, high-yield summary of major issues facing attorneys handling medical malpractice cases, illustrated very well with clinically relevant examples, scenarios, and hypotheticals.
