Issues in Today's Medical Malpractice Litigation Employees, Agents, and More - Claims of Hospital Liability for Physician Conduct
Admitting liability in a Medical Malpractice case can be one of the most daunting decisions an attorney will make. When a healthcare provider admits liability, he or she is only admitting that he or she caused the accident but not necessarily that all injuries were caused by the breach. In addition the general rule that subsequent remedial measures are not admissible to show the antecedent negligence or culpable conduct but this rule does not require the exclusion of evidence when offered for another purpose. What if you want to show you made a change, can you? You may be able to in certain circumstances such as when the plaintiff has requested punitive damages.
