How Inaccurate Medical Information and Evaluation Commonly Destroy Claim Value

Published by Texas Trial Lawyers Association


The direct result of Inaccurate and poor-quality objective diagnostic tests (including MRI) which abound in Texas is the disabling of a person damaged by another’s negligence to prove the extent and causation of his/her injuries and the cost of resultant future deterioration, disability and medical costs. Rephrased: poor quality medicine makes the entire civil claims process inaccurate and difficult - and it’s common. Unfortunately, the responsibility to insure the quality of medical care provided to an injured client defaults to a person unqualified for that task: the plaintiff attorney. The primary purpose of this webinar is to identify common medical inadequacies that illegitimately destroy claim value, inadequacies that every plaintiff’s attorney is unknowingly victimized by, and to provide the attorney some simple methods of identifying such failures.

I will give vivid examples of how claims are devalued by poor quality MRIs, the inaccuracy of even the best quality MRI in defining appropriate treatment and the likelihood of future medical costs, how sloppy terminology in test reports leads to legal failure, the special diagnostic value of arthroscopy in major joint injuries, and how misguided some current accepted medical practices are when applied to civil justice.

Expect to be shocked. Expect to learn. Expect that your practice to be empowered by this webinar.
