2020 Medical Negligence Virtual Seminar

Published by Maryland Association for Justice


Join MAJ for an informative and comprehensive two-part, half-day seminar that will arm you with the resources and knowledge necessary to succeed inside and outside of the courtroom to obtain the best result for your client.


When a patient presents at a hospital or a affiliated practice, a doctor’s actual employer may become a central issue within litigation. Hospitals have often claimed that a physician accused of negligence is not an employee or agent of the hospital and therefore, not covered by their insurance. However, even when they are not directly employed by the hospital, they may be shown to be agents of the hospital.

This session will discuss recent developments in cases involving apparent agency and other strategies for holding entities liable for the malfeasance of medical staff.


Deaths from prescription opioids have risen dramatically. In 1999, there were 3,442 deaths attributed to overdose, but by 2017, the number rose to 17,029. Who pays the cost when the doctors and possibly pharmacies ignored the warning signs or didn't perform due diligence? The major pharmacies often point the finger at the physicians for fueling the opioid crisis.

This presentation will provide perspective and real caselaw on opioids and liability including investigations, strategies and when it is appropriate to include the pharmacy as a defendant.
