One Bad Apple: Navigating through Sexual Battery and other Intentional Torts

August 8, 2019

Individual providers and healthcare organizations are dealing with the challenges of egregious intentional torts such as sexual assault by providers and other bad acts. It can be difficult to navigate the coverage issues, reservation of rights, need for medical board counsel, criminal counsel, and cumis counsel.

WSHB Partner Constance Endelicato will explore all of these topics and more at a Southern California Association for Healthcare Risk Management (SCAHRM) in-person breakfast program on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at The California Club in Downtown Los Angeles. Included in this lively discussion, Ms. Endelicato will also address the potential PR damage control for the facility and negligent hiring and supervision claims against the facility which can result in cross claim for indemnity. This presentation will prepare you to navigate these issues as well as discuss claims that seem to be false accusations.

“It is easy to paint a picture of rampant abuse in institutions accused of sexual battery which relate to the act of one individual,” said Ms. Endelicato. “Navigating this minefield is one of the most difficult tasks of the general counsel, claim professional and lawyer in divining the truth, employing safeguards to protect against this conduct and bringing closure for everyone involved.”

Ms. Endelicato is a partner in WSHB’s Los Angles office with over 25 years of litigation experience in defending healthcare professionals and has successfully tried over 60 jury trials, undefeated. Her cases range from catastrophic injuries, including birth injury, spinal cord injury and brain injury, to wrongful death actions and mass tort litigation. A member of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates, Ms. Endelicato has earned the recognition of Super Lawyer in Southern California and in Orange County and has been recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the Top Women Attorneys in Southern California. In addition to her trial work, Ms. Endelicato routinely is involved in Law and Motion in both the Superior Court and Appellate Court levels.
