Join us on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 12 noon (AZ time) as Burton Bentley II, M.D., FAAEM, presents:
Finding and Working with Medical Experts; Do's and Don'ts
Physicians and surgeons are critical assets in medical litigation, and the task of securing them as expert witnesses is often assigned to paralegals. Successful paralegals must know how to proactively manage expert witnesses while avoiding critical points of failure. During this webinar, Dr. Bentley provides practical insight into the expert witness relationship and gives practical advice for expert selection, vetting, retention, fees, and communication. When experts and paralegals align constructively, legal teams maximize their potential for efficiency, cost-savings, and success.
