Early Registration Discount Deadline, Friday, June 30, 2017


This CLE webinar will prepare attorneys representing plaintiffs or defendants in nursing home injury cases to argue for or against the admissibility of critical evidence at trial. The panel will discuss best practices for authenticating, or challenging the authenticity of, medical records and charts, family communications, and other information. The panel will provide their insights into proving or challenging the relevancy and prejudicial nature of nursing home statutes and regulations, customer surveys and other documents, and making or overcoming hearsay objections.

Description

Nursing home injury cases are very document intensive. Information contained in patient or resident records and medical charts, staff assignments, family communications, customer surveys, and visitor logs is critical to proving or defeating negligence claims. Counsel will also frequently seek to admit federal and state statutes and regulations as evidence to support the standard of care for nursing homes.

Depending on how helpful or harmful such documents are to their clients, counsel for victims and facilities will argue fervently for or against their admissibility into evidence.

Admissibility arguments largely center around whether evidence is relevant, prejudicial or constitutes hearsay. Whether the proper foundation has been laid for authentication of the evidence is also critical. This can include authentication of electronic discovery, social media sites, timelines, diagrams and other demonstrative evidence.

Listen as our authoritative panel of personal injury and medical malpractice litigators discusses effective strategies for getting evidence admitted in nursing home injury cases or keeping it out, including tactics related to authentication, relevance and hearsay.
