About this Conference

Obstetric malpractice claims continue to be among the costliest of medical malpractice claims, with birth injury claims being the most expensive. In the last few years, at least 80% of obstetrician-gynecologists have reported being named as a defendant in a medical malpractice lawsuit.*

As such, it is more crucial than ever before for obstetric stakeholders to stay up to date on the latest medical advancements, constantly evolving technology, and groundbreaking case verdicts, to assess costly malpractice law suits. For all these reasons and more, this is a must attend event.

Our unparalleled faculty of claim specialists, risk managers, medical experts – as well as a wide array of plaintiff and defense attorneys – will share their insights on some of the most complex medical and legal challenges posed in today’s post pandemic world.
