Starting in the 1990s, auto insurance companies started denying motor vehicle claims with small amounts of visible vehicle damage, pushing lawyers to take them to trial. Some insurers refer to these as “minor impact” or “minor impact soft-tissue” (MIST) cases. In order to win these cases, you need to be able to effectively communicate the extent of your client’s injuries to a jury. This new 60 minute program is designed to bring you up to date on some of the most recent scientific research and publications in the field of low-speed crash litigation.
Dr. Michael Freeman, a forensic epidemiologist and consultant in forensic medicine, is one of the leading experts in the world on injuries caused by motor vehicle collisions. He has provided expert testimony over 1,200 times in a wide variety of civil and criminal cases, and is a widely published author on topics relating to forensic applications of epidemiology and general and specific causation.
His lecture will focus on generally accepted methods of medicolegal causation, and how epidemiologic concepts are commonly used to address causation by treating clinicians—as well as misused by defense experts. He will also discuss recent publications from his research team that address key legal issues regarding causation and prognosis in low speed crashes, as well as how they relate to disputed litigation issues. Dr. Freeman will also provide example cases to illustrate how this research can be used in trial.
Dr. Freeman wants to specifically invite insurance companies, insurance doctors and defense lawyers to attend this program to ensure they know this important new research about injury causation.
