This CLE course will offer medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys real-life techniques for cross-examination and impeachment of important medical malpractice treating professionals, hospital employees, physicians, and executives. The webinar will discuss how to establish critical elements with respect to the standard of care, present damages, and get binding admissions on crucial elements of the case. The panel will also discuss what defense strategies and tactics to expect and how to address them head on.


Treating professionals, hospital staff, and corporate representatives are among the most significant witnesses in a medical malpractice case. During cross-examination, counsel will be able to scrutinize policies and practices to establish the standard of care on both a patient and enterprise level.

Good cross-examination begins with the depositions. Rule 30(b)(6) depositions are now routine in medical malpractice actions. Defendants include complex organizations, making it difficult to ascertain who is ultimately responsible for the decision at issue. Often there is a disconnect between policy and practice.

Listen as our experienced panel explains legal and practical considerations for medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys when preparing for and conducting cross-examination of hospital employees and executives in medical malpractice cases.



  1. Establishing goals for cross-examination
  2. Cross-examination tactics


The panel will review these and other critical issues:

  • What is the best way to establish the standard of care using treating professionals?
  • What are the most defense strategies to address and how can plaintiff's attorneys meet them head on?
  • What strategies work best for pinning witnesses down?
