Perhaps the most common type of case presented to a medical malpractice attorney involves the failure to diagnose, or diagnose in a timely fashion, a medical condition or disease. In this course, attorneys Jason Rubin and Philip Rossotti provide an overview of the handling of this type of case from inception to trial. Additionally, they offer examples of successful trial techniques, including those for cross-examination.
I. Define the elements of a prima facie case
II. Understand the steps to the initial investigation, evaluation, and workup of the case
III. Identify the resources available to understand and investigate the medico-legal issues involved in the case
IV. Develop strategies for the defendant doctor’s deposition, jury selection, and for trial
This guy sounds like a legit trial lawyer.

The presenters provided a very good overview of the elements of malpractice and failure to diagnose. It was very effective to link these elements with the cross examination of a specific case.
