Understanding why Goliaths are so powerful, and knowing how to fight them

This article was produced in partnership with Bogoroch & Associates

With the high cost of retaining medical experts, along with the delays in the civil justice system, few lawyers can afford to finance medical malpractice cases or take on personal injury cases where the damages are less-than-catastrophic. According to Richard Bogoroch and Heidi Brown, both partners at Bogoroch & Associates, these factors create a substantial barrier for deserving victims trying to access justice. Given the challenges and costs, it is essential for victims to retain experienced counsel who are accustomed to fighting a "David v. Goliath" battle in a medical or hospital malpractice case.

And while David and Goliath is an easy metaphor to invoke when discussing an unfair fight, the comparison is apt. After all, in the Old Testament, Goliath wasn’t just bigger and stronger than David, he also had nigh-impenetrable armour and better weapons. Similarly, hospitals and insurance companies are both shielded by friendly laws and have near-limitless resources at their disposal. Still, there is reason to hope.

In a recent webinar,. Bogoroch and Brown, partners at Bogoroch & Associates, discussed the unique challenges of medical and hospital malpractice litigation. The experienced lawyers addressed recent case law, notable developments in admissibility and scope of expert evidence, informed consent, and incidents of delayed diagnostics, all with the clear hope of arming litigators for their difficult battles ahead.

Packed with practical trial tips, the webinar, titled David and Goliath: The Enduring Challenges of Suing Doctors and Hospitals was geared to lawyers, paralegals, law clerks, and persons interested in learning more about the complex practice area of medical and hospital malpractice litigation.

Those who missed the live webinar still have an opportunity to learn from the masters.
