Preparing and Winning Medical Negligence Cases - Third Edition has been prepared by prominent, experienced medical specialists, all of whom have had much professional involvement and interest in legal medicine for many years, many of whom have JD as well as MD degrees. Therefore, while the chapters present a wealth of solid information for a variety of medical specialists, they are primarily designed to address important issues that are undoubtedly of great value to both plaintiff and defense trial attorneys, as well as health care professionals, and hospital administrative personnel regarding medical malpractice cases. Preparing and Winning Medical Negligence Cases provides extensive information for lawyers regarding medical malpractice suits from both a legal and medical perspectives. It makes complex topics such as anatomy, physiology and pathology of various organ systems and the clinical diagnoses rendered by medical specialists accessible to lawyers bringing or defending medical malpractice cases. The knowledge and experience contained in this work will provide invaluable information for attorneys in both the pretrial preparation and actual trial of medical negligence cases. Preparing and Winning Medical Negligence Cases brings together the combined knowledge and experience of outstanding medical-legal teachers and writers for the purpose of educating attorneys about the difficult, variegated, and controversial subject of medical malpractice. It is difficult, if not impossible, to think of a legal area that has been the subject of as much oral and written commentary in the past twenty years as medical malpractice. Unfortunately, many of these speeches, publications, and special programs have generated far more heat than light on this complex and controversial topic. As a result, confusion and misunderstanding have precipitated hostility among a great majority of physicians toward lawyers, particularly plaintiffs' trial attorneys. Addressing this issue, this volume was prepared by prominent, experienced medical specialists, all of whom have had much involvement and interest in legal medicine for many years. Therefore, although the chapters are substantive, solid reviews from the perspective of medical specialists, they also are geared to address important issues encountered at the interface of law and medicine.
