Wagener Analyzes Important Appellate Decision on Jury Instructions in Medical Malpractice Cases

Susan Wagener has written an analysis of how a recent Illinois appellate court decision reversed a longstanding precedent on jury instructions in medical malpractice trials. Her article, published in an issue of IDC Quarterly, traces the development of nonpattern jury instructions on the loss of chance doctrine. The full article is available here.

Wagener, a partner in the firm’s Chicago office, focuses her practice on the defense of health care professional licensure cases, medical malpractice, nursing home litigation, and general healthcare law matters. In addition to her active trial practice, she regularly presents and publishes on topics related to malpractice risk management and the defense of disciplinary matters. Prior to becoming an attorney, she was a registered nurse, specializing in orthopedic and medical-surgical nursing care.
