How can I retain a Medical Expert for my Medical Malpractice (medmal) case and what are your fees?
Medical Malpractice cases require the type of expert who must be willing to stand by his/her findings even though it may differ from one of their peers. A balance must be struck between an attorney’s “wish-list” of desired characteristics for their expert and the number of medical experts who are willing to take on this role. Our staff will find you the right experts for your malpractice case. At the time of request, a one-time fee, usually a retainer of $450, is required per specialty. Usually within hours, you will receive 1-2 medical expert’s CVs we feel fit your criteria and the issues of your case. If you agree, we will then refund $100 in consideration for less time spent on our part fulfilling your case specifications. However, if you would like to view more expert’s CVs, we will forward up to a total of 5 CVs or more, depending on your case. We feel a balance is thus struck between the highly specialized professional services we provide for our experts and your desire to find a qualified expert with ideal characteristics. Please go to our medical malpractice section for more specific explanation on fees. (TOP OF SECTION) (TOP OF PAGE)
Do you specialize in plaintiff or defense cases?
