How to turn Expert Opinion into Early Settlement

August 25th, 2015 · Comments Off on How to turn Expert Opinion into Early Settlement

homerunI’ve been helping litigation lawyers turn medical law suits into settlements with incredible consistency and success for 35 years. These results are unparalleled in the industry:

  • 1,250 cases reviewed; 1,215 cases settled*
  • 35 court appearances; 32 successful verdicts

(*approximate figures based on an average of 50 cases per year)

The reason that 97% of my clients’ cases settled is the forensic process; starting with the end result and working in reverse chronological order to link up with one or more precipitating events. This methodology is similar to that used in crime scene investigations. Accordingly, I’ve always based my opinions on evidentiary documentation and I show those in my reports in the form of scanned images. Such a presentation identifies at-a-glance what happened and/or what’s missing.

The end result is more settlements and fewer trials.

Here is a partial list of my case experiences:

  • Personal Injury
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Pain and suffering in the comatose patient
  • Product Liability
  • Toxic Torts
  • Pressure Ulcers (Bed Sores)
  • Patient Falls
  • Accidental Burns
  • Patient Abuse
  • Narcotic Overdose
  • Wrongful Death
  • Euthanasia (withholding of treatment against family’s wishes)
  •  Home Care Negligence
  • Inappropriate Hospital Discharge
  • Hospital Administration Liability
  • Medical Equipment in Disrepair
  • Environmental Hazards
  • Inadequate Patient Ratios
