Day 1

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Proving Medical Battery and Informed Consent
Clint Kelly, Attorney, Kelly Firm

Medical battery and informed consent cases are on the rise. These claims will be more common where substantial increases in patient volume and pressure on doctors to produce income for hospitals can lead to shortcuts in safety. This presentation is a primer on the claims of medical battery and informed consent, how they evolved, how they are related, and where they differ. The proof requirements will be examined in detail. Actual cases will be analyzed to show the proof necessary for elements of these torts and in-depth analyses of appellate cases. This session will provide answers to critical questions, such as:

  • Is an expert required?
  • Is a certificate of good faith needed before proceeding with either claim?
  • Does the injury have to be caused by malpractice?
  • Can medical malpractice, medical battery, and informed consent co-exist in the same case?
