Michael Coates Esq

Michael Coates Esq

Ethics & Law in Personal Injury

10:30am – 12:30pm

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. Attorney Michael Coates 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.
