I wanted to remind readers know that I will be speaking in an upcoming Strafford live phone/web seminar entitled "Medical Monitoring in Products Liability Claims: Challenges for Plaintiffs and Defendants" scheduled for Tuesday, March 20, 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.
We have posted on a number of medical monitoring issues before, and some observers think that the number of medical monitoring claims for future testing to provide for early detection of diseases based on alleged exposure to toxic substances is on the rise.
Courts in various jurisdictions hold different views on the recognition of medical monitoring claims, whether these claims are a cause of action or an issue of damages, and the elements of the theory.
My fellow panelists and I will provide practitioners with a review of defense and plaintiff counsels' perspectives regarding medical monitoring. My focus will be on medical monitoring class actions.
After our presentations, we will engage in a live question and answer session with participants — so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly. I hope you'll join us.
