Recent decisions in the First Circuit and federal district court for
Massachusetts have addressed the admissibility of medical opinion regarding the
cause of occupational disease, both for trial and summary judgment
purposes. This discussion will include a legal analysis now being applied
by the courts, and medical analysis applied by occupational health
professionals, in this challenging intersection between toxic torts, regulatory
law, and science. This session will be of special interest to those with
personal injury and workers compensation practices, and anyone relying on, or
defending against, complex expert opinion at the motion and trial
