Abstract- Top Legal Risks for the Pain

Barry Straus, MD, JD

What are the top legal risks you need to consider when practicing pain medicine? Different legal risks require different strategies for risk management. The top risks are not necessarily malpractice and regulatory. This talk will go over the legal risks one is most likely to encounter and how to assess the risks for both owners and employees/1099 contractors. Strategies to manage the risks such as insurance, asset protection, business formations, contract review, when to hire a lawyer, what type of lawyer for what situation, and when to panic will be discussed.

I encourage you to learn more about this topic when you attend the 38th Annual Southern Pain Society Meeting at our new New Orleans location September 20 through 22, 2024.
