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.

Agenda:
I.    Evaluating a Possible Case
II.    The Statute of Limitations
III.    Vicarious Liabilities
IV.    Informed Consent
V.    Referring the Case      
VI.    Evaluating the Client
