Episode #151 - Medical Malpractice Cases

Guests: Attorneys Jason Hendren & Jackie Clark - Hall Booth Smith

Attorneys Jason Hendren & Jackie Clark, both Partners with Hall Booth Smith, join Dr. Steve Wood to talk about medical malpractice cases. The group discusses which med mal cases are the most difficult to litigate (birth trauma; wrongful death; paralysis cases) and the challenges with managing juror sympathy in cases with young injured parties. They talk about how juror perceptions of the reputation of well-known/top tier facilities impact juror decision-making, plus the challenges of traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases, the importance of counter anchoring for the defense, whether jurors understand the medicine, and how they manage co-defendants in their cases.
