Damages and Medical Monitoring - Podcast

Litigation Practice Group Podcast
Featuring Mark A. Behrens
February 04, 2014

Medical SymbolThere is a split among appellate courts in the United States over medical monitoring – court-ordered payments to plaintiffs who have been exposed to some potentially harmful product or situation but have no symptoms. Is a present injury a fundamental prerequisite to any award? Should the person or entity that created the product or situation be required to pay plaintiffs for periodic medical testing? Most, but not all, courts say no. Mark Behrens discussed medical monitoring, when and where it might be required, and the latest trends.

Featuring:

  • Mark A. Behrens, Partner, Shook, Hardy & Bacon, L.L.P.
