September 16, 2015

Roig Lawyers, a minority-owned, multi-practice litigation law firm dedicated to serving clients across six offices throughout Florida, is pleased to announce that Ed Carbone, managing partner of the Tampa office, will speak at The Florida Bar Continuing Legal Education Committee and the Health Law Section’s 7th Annual FUNdamentals: Lawyers at the Bedside: The Intersection of Legal and Medical Ethics CLE program on September 18, 2015, at the Orlando Airport Marriott.

Carbone will discuss the intersection of legal principles and medical ethics primarily in the context of hospital ethics committees. The discussion will include issues when what is legally permissible or legally required diverges from what is medically ethical, as well as situations where interests of patients, providers, and facilities conflict.

Back by popular demand, the annual don’t miss FUNdamentals of Florida healthcare law CLE program focuses this year on lawyers at the bedside – the intersection of legal and medical ethics. This lively and fast-paced program features 4.5 hours of legal ethics credit and is designed to be immediately useful to attorneys, medical professionals, and healthcare consultants needing to better understand legal and medical ethics issues that arise when interests of the legal profession, the medical profession, patients and patients’ families collide.

Carbone is the head of the firm’s healthcare practice and primarily represents hospitals, physicians, hospices, and other healthcare providers. He defends providers against claims for medical malpractice, general negligence, billing and collections issues, and other claims, both at trial and on appeal. He has significant experience handling birth injury claims, including disputes over the applicability of Florida’s Neurological Injury Compensation Association (NICA) no-fault compensation program for birth-related neurological injuries. He is a graduate of Boston College (B.A., 1991) and Boston College Law School (J.D., 1994).
