Be a part of the nation’s premier obstetric malpractice conference and ensure that you keep abreast of the evolving standards of care, emerging theories of liability, and new defense strategies. Obstetric malpractice cases continue to result in massive verdicts, reaching amounts in excess of $100 million. Claims are evolving in response to advances in medical technology, which can increase the potential for errors in the delivery room.  Further, new standards of care are emerging and with these new standards come new malpractice claims. Given the state of obstetric malpractice, it is essential that all those along the obstetric malpractice continuum, including medical professionals, risk managers, insurance professionals, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and defense counsel, be current on the latest claims and defense strategies and how they are impacting the practice. American Conference Institute’s 16th Annual Advanced Forum on Obstetric Malpractice Claims will bring together an unparalleled faculty of medical experts, risk managers, insurance professionals, and leading plaintiffs’ and defense attorneys, who will provide you with the most up-to-date information on complex medical issues and litigation hurdles. Sessions include:  
  • An examination of damages: ACA repeal and its intended impact, collateral source rule, mitigation of damages, billed v. actual costs
  • Managing life care plans
  • Jury trial techniques
  • Tort reform, structured settlement, negotiations, and closing the case early to avoid costly trial
  • New emerging trends in brain cooling techniques
