Work with Licensed Expert Medical Witness Assistants
Accolade Consultants provides expert medical witness assistants for those involved in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. We work diligently to help you save time, reduce costs, and reach the best litigation outcomes.
When and why you need medical expert testimony
Medical expert testimony is used to prove negligence in a personal injury or medical malpractice case and is even required in some states. While the jury is not obliged to accept everything the expert witness says, medical expert testimony is useful in simplifying complex information.
Although medical expert witnesses are most often seen in court, they may also provide value at every stage of litigation. The findings of a virtual expert medical witness assistant can guide lawyers in assessing the facts of a case before moving to trial. Expert medical analysis is also crucial as your case moves to discovery and, ultimately, trial.
Responsibilities of expert medical witness assistants
Perform in-depth case reviews
Medical expert witnesses will thoroughly evaluate the documents of the case they’re going to testify about.
Provide qualified medical opinions
To be effective, an expert witness must provide an independent medical opinion regarding the case.
Generate an impartial report
After studying all the documents and evidence provided, a medical expert witness will produce an impartial report regarding the facts of the case and verify their accuracy.
A medical expert witness is prohibited from disclosing any information about the case to outside parties, unless they have acquired consent or have been ordered to do so by a court or tribunal.
What makes an effective expert
medical witness assistant
One of the roles of a medical expert witness is to break down complex concepts to jurors who are unfamiliar with medical terminology. Physicians who can communicate in a clear and straightforward way are in a better position to connect with the jury and represent you in court.
