Case Review & Evaluation, Expert Witness Testimony
Today it is more important than ever to work with an experienced and independent expert who will work with you [and your team] to build the strongest possible case for your clients. Experience has showed that a well written opinion can result in early settlement, avoiding costly litigation and court fees. Utilizing testimony from an expert witness is a very powerful tool during litigation. As a skilled dental expert, I can act on your case in a timely, cost effective fashion and support your case through trial with authoritative analysis, appropriate and /or necessary affidavits and compelling testimony. All pertinent records will be reviewed and analyzed to produce a conservative, strategic, and well thought out opinion and included with the written report.
Role of the Dental Expert Witness
In hiring individuals like me, attorneys can be given, for example, a 30 page report supported by pictures/x-rays that convinced a judge upon only glancing at the report to recommend settlement to the other side rather than setting a trial date. It can also mean finding a statement in a deposition given by the defendant dentist (“I just love doing extractions.”) to explain why he failed to refer for said extractions and in the process broke the patient’s jaw.
Rather than decipher notes that read as hieroglyphics to the non-dental professional (#3 MOD Supreme Ultra A3B Universal Flowable Vitrebond 1.7 cc 2% lido w/100,000 epi) when the patient/insurance company was charged for something entirely different (#3 CC) or to have the patient claim he/she was never referred for the visit to the gum specialist when in reality he/she was perhaps referred multiple times (#24 refer perio CT graft poss fren), attorneys can rely on dental experts like me to make sense of that which is written or perhaps NOT written as the case may be.
