Undefeated Medical Negligence Litigator Shares “Death With Dignity” Expertise

March 15, 2017

Constance Endelicato explores controversial issue at 2017 CLM Annual Conference

As 25 states consider “Death with Dignity” legislation, the future impact on litigation will be explored by Constance Endelicato at a 2017 CLM Conference session on March 30, 2017. Endelicato, undefeated in over 60 trials, is one of the nation’s most celebrated litigators handling medical negligence matters. This year’s CLM annual conference is expected be the largest insurance claims conference in the country, hosting 2,000 claims professionals and outside counsel late next week in Nashville.

“The Death with Dignity issue is one of the most controversial and emerging topics we are seeing play out in litigation in 2017 and beyond,” explained Endelicato, partner at WSHB. “This presentation provides valuable insight to the general counsel, risk managers and claim professionals on perils and pitfalls from the issue of death with dignity as it relates to claims and litigation.”

Once Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, the 29 year old California resident relocated to Oregon, the first state to enact “Death with Dignity” legislation. That legislation affords a person with less than six months to live, the right to ingest a lethal medication. California has since enacted similar legislation which went into effect late last year. The CLM session will focus on issues in risk management and litigation including liability for mismanagement, providers’ right to opt out, Medicare and private insurance consideration, and ethical and moral issues involving conflict of interest.

Endelicato has over 25 years of litigation experience defending healthcare professionals. She is a member of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates. Endelicato has earned the recognition of Super Lawyer in Southern California and in Orange County from 2010-2017 and has been recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the Top Women Attorneys in Southern California.
