The Cures Act - A Practical Application
The 21st Century Cures Act went into effect on April 5, 2021. This course will delve into the practical application aspects of the new law, and how it can be effective for Plaintiff’s Personal Injury cases, regardless of location.
Because the Act itself is new and not widely communicated, this course will primarily discuss options for records retrieval, options for failures on the part of the actor, and how the new law is expected to play out from a practical standpoint.
This program includes a one hour on demand video including Q&A portion (closed captioned), a copy of the PowerPoint in PDF format and a copy of all handouts including two Word version sample requests.
