LIFE CARE PLAN REVIEW
Review the plaintiff’s proposed plan of care and provide the defense counsel an independent medical opinion.
We will review your cases from an engineering or mechanical perspective with an understanding of how different parts of the human body react—and interact with external forces.
INJURY CAUSATION EXPERT
Our injury causation expert services can help you to prove or disprove causation of injuries in your case.
LIFE EXPECTANCY SERVICES
Life expectancy is a critical part of the calculation to determine settlement amounts and it is critical to your case to make sure it is correct.
INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS (IME)
An independent medical exam can be conducted to determine the cause, extent and medical treatment of an injury where liability is at issue and whether any permanent impairment remains after treatment. This can be done by itself or as part of a life care plan.
