Program Materials

This CLE webinar will examine current trends in medical malpractice lawsuits against radiologists and strategies for plaintiff and defense counsel handling these cases. The panel will discuss common bases for claims, proving or challenging causation and damages, working with expert witnesses to determine the appropriate standard of medical care and treatment, settlement strategies, and more.

Description

As medical technology advances, radiologists have more responsibility for patient diagnoses, increasing their exposure to medical malpractice lawsuits. Lawsuits typically allege failure to detect an abnormality, errors in interpreting findings, failure to recommend appropriate follow up, or failure to communicate with the patient or referring physician in a timely or appropriate manner.

Medical malpractice attorneys—both plaintiff and defense—must navigate a number of unique and complicated legal and medical-legal issues when representing clients in lawsuits against radiologists.

Listen as our authoritative panel of medical malpractice attorneys discusses considerations and strategies for bringing or defending malpractice claims against radiologists, including addressing causation and damages, working with experts, settling cases, and more.
