Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer among women in the U.S. and the second leading cause of death for all women. Because early detection is vital in successful cancer treatment, the failure to diagnose cancer at the outset may have dire consequences.

Preparing and trying failure to diagnose breast cancer cases requires both a thorough knowledge of the law and issues unique to cancer diagnosis and detection. This program will provide an overview of the medical and legal issues surrounding negligence in cancer misdiagnosis cases. Featuring nationally recognized medical experts in oncology and cancer detection, the morning session will cover the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of breast cancer and provide attendees with an understanding of the medical background necessary to handle these cases. Leading medical malpractice trial attorneys will present an overview of case selection, trial strategies and the art of explaining technical medical concepts to jurors during the afternoon portion of the program.
