Practical Issues in Medical Malpractice and Informed Consent

On May 10, 2011 by Schnader

Saul Wilensky, a partner resident In Schnader’s New York office, gave a lecture at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine on “Practical Issues in Medical Malpractice and Informed Consent.” Mr. Wilensky’s lecture, which he prepared with Matthew J. Kelly Jr., an associate also resident in Schnader’s New York office, focused on the legal definitions of medical malpractice and informed consent, and how a potential jury could view a given case. The audience was a mixture of medical students and faculty. This was the second year in a row that Mr. Wilensky has been invited to speak at Touro on medical malpractice and, as with last year, the lecture became an opportunity for dialogue about the changing legal and medical landscape in terms of liability, insurance, and malpractice litigation generally.
