Ethics and the Law in Personal Injury

Course Description

The personal injury business involves several players – patients, attorneys, medical providers, and insurance adjusters among them. Each has its own sometimes ethically- fluid motivations that are financially driven and often come at the expense of medical providers. This course will help providers understand each player’s self-interests, and the strategies and tactics those players employ in the PI “game.” Most importantly, providers will learn how to avoid the pitfalls that can legally and financially damage their medical practice and how to protect their practices.

Learning Objectives

  • Able to identify, prevent and resolve legal and ethical violations (fouls), intentional or otherwise, committed by patients, attorneys, and insurers
  • Understand and prevent the legal and ethical violations providers can make when dealing with PI patients and their attorneys, as well as with insurers
  • Adept at complying with the NSA’s consent and GFE requirements, and regulatory disclosure and documentation mandates
