PLI’s Medical Malpractice: Discovery and Trial shows you how to craft winning malpractice case approaches, guiding you confidently through the relevant law, sound case preparation, vital pretrial issues, and trial combat.

Medical Malpractice enables you to determine the relevant standard of care for each case; uncover medical facts that help prove (or rebut) claims; use depositions to get an early advantage over opponents; master voir dire to get the most favorable jurors for your side; establish the plaintiff’s complete medical history; prepare and present witnesses effectively to advance your case; use cross-examination to damage opponents’ cases and enhance your cases; prove the four essential elements of a medical malpractice claim; defeat claims using simple and affirmative defenses; prepare requests for charge that bolster your chances of winning; and deliver compelling opening statements and persuasive closing arguments.

Medical Malpractice offers you thorough coverage of the appeals process, including how to preserve issues for appeal and interpose and perfect the appeal.

Updated annually or as needed, Medical Malpractice: Discovery and Trial is an essential handbook for plaintiffs’ and defendants’ attorneys in medical malpractice litigation.
