The JULY issue of Concussion Litigation Reporter has been posted for subscribers.
William M. McDonnell, MD, JD, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Medical Liability and Risk Management, recently wrote a piece for AAP News, the official news magazine of the AAP, entitled: “How to Avoid Potential Liability Headaches from State Concussion Laws.” We decided to reach out to McDonnell and ask him some pointed questions about the issue.
