By: Carter Conboy
On March 8, 2019, Adam H. Cooper was the Program Chair of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) program Medical Malpractice Litigation 2019, held in Albany, NY. The program panel included Albany-area litigators and Albany County Supreme Court judge, Hon. Kimberly A. O’Connor.
The program concentrated on litigation topics, including developments in substantive law; discovery; deposition/trial examination of the defendant; cross-examination of experts; opening statements and summations; and a view from the bench.
Adam spoke on the topic “Preparation of the Defendant for Deposition” which focused on how to consider and answer important questions; how to navigate the waters of informed consent and recognized risks; recollection, custom, and practice; altered records; documentation of significant findings; whether earlier treatment is better; if you need a diagnosis to treat; and general causation questions.
The program was sponsored by the Committee on Continuing Legal Education, the Torts, Insurance and Compensation Law Section (TICL), and Trial Lawyers Section of the NYSBA.
