Course DescriptionEvery year in the U.S, an estimated one million people are injured and 120,000 people die due to medical error. That's nearly 3X the number of deaths due to motor vehicle collisions. Roughly 6% of these incidents result in a lawsuit.
Deciding whether it is worth your time and expense to take on a medical malpractice case can be difficult. As these cases are especially costly to pursue, evaluating the complexity of the case, and potential costs and risks are essential. In this program, catastrophic injury litigator Susan Ramsey will help you do just that. Ms. Ramsey will guide you through each step of evaluating and screening, from the initial client interview through building a client's medical chronology. Ms. Ramsey will also provide a number of valuable tips on how to research the medical issues presented by a case and how to find the right expert.
