Medicine and law intersect in many ways, but the common element is always complex. In the legal context, there are special rules that govern the presentation of science in the courtroom. In medicine, there is complexity driven by the need to reduce the highly technical field to jury friendly communication. Controversies arising from this intersection must be addressed with experience and knowledge. Wilson Smith has been very successful in partnering with clients as they encounter controversies in this field.
