The move by Washington lawmakers and the White House to reform the nation's health care system has caused heated debates from the floor of Congress to town halls across the country.
But while issues such as a proposed government-run health insurance option have dominated the debate, another issue - medical malpractice reform - went largely unaddressed. That is, until now.
This is the first edition of Lawyers USA's Lawyers in Practice, where we discuss the hot issues facing practicing attorneys and law firms.
In this edition, we discuss how to prevent legal malpractice claims with better communication, with Jim Calloway, director of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Management Assistance Program, and Dan Pinnington, vice-president of Claims Prevention and Stakeholder Relations at LawPRO, a professional liability carrier based in Toronto, Canada.
