Litigation of Medical Negligence Cases in the COVID Era

Hosted by the Medical Legal Committee of the State Civil Litigation Section

Under the continuing and worsening pandemic, could there possibly be a more challenging time than now to litigate and try a medical negligence case? The COVID-19 pandemic has created for the foreseeable future a sea change in our practices. Trial lawyers must now effectively use remote technology to conduct client meetings, prepare, and present witnesses for depositions and mediations.

Our esteemed panelists will cover the practical, substantive and technical aspects we now face in prosecuting and defending medical negligence cases. Attendees hear the perspective from the court with a presentation by Honorable Denis Cohen on recent cases in the courts. Panelists will provide practical pointers in how to prepare and defend depositions of our clients via Zoom; an update on the limits to Executive Orders limiting immunity to Pennsylvania COVID health care workers; and offer a demonstration of effective cross examination utilizing platforms of Zoom, GoToMeeting etc. Finally, a "Can't Miss" presentation on litigating nursing home (COVID-related) death cases.

Panelists in this program will address the following topics:
  • 2020 – Case Law Year in Review
  • Preparing Clients and Witnesses for Remote Depositions including Ethical Challenges 
  • Defending Medical Negligence Cases: Effective use of Technology in Cross Examination of Experts
  • Impact of Executive Order Relating to Medical Professional Immunity for COVID Care
  • Litigating COVID-19 Deaths in Nursing Homes
