Fred Schulman‘s widely respected treatise, published by Law Journal Press (a division of American Lawyer Media), is a primer for medical malpractice attorneys throughout the country. Mr. Schulman updates the book twice a year, with new statutes and case law, so as to remain on the forefront of medical malpractice litigation.
The book treats a case as a continuous process, from the initial client interview to the closing argument. It offers comprehensive coverage of the cutting-edge issues such as the right to conduct ex parte interviews of treating physicians, caps on damages in medical malpractice cases, qualifications of expert witnesses (the locality rule versus the national standard) and the “date of discovery” rule for purposes of statute of limitations.
Mr. Schulman recently submitted the next update to the book to the publisher. The update will be distributed to subscribers in early 2016. The book is available in hard copy, online, and as an eBook.
