Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

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 stages.  

Featuring David Christiani, MD, Director, Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health, Harvard University
Legal discussion led by MassCOSH Lawyers Committee co-chair David Strouss, of Thornton & Naumes, LLP.
