Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
In our opinion, no risk management is necessary. The trial judge failed to allow our expert to address the critictisms and limited the defense of the case. The insurance coverage for Dr. Thompson, the defendant physician, was processed through the insurance policy of Dr. Wagaman, as the employer of Dr. Thompson. However, Dr. Wagaman was not a participant in medical care or a defendant.
