Expert Medical Evidence for Personal Injury

The evidences produced by the claimant relating to the liability of the defendant need to be investigated and proved by his attorney. This could be a time consuming process depending on the complexity of the injury. One of them is said to be the medical evidence which is used to point out the negligence on part of the defendant and claim the compensation.

Parker Waichman Law Firm

At the Parker Waichman Law Firm, the expert lawyers work towards establishing the medical evidences with the help of experts from that field. They are supported by the initial diagnosis reports. They are analyzed with the forensic reports based on eh circumstantial evidences at the accident spot. The report may point out the exact / probable cause of the injury at the accident spot. If this proof is found to be insufficient, the attorney will have to go ahead with further diagnosis.

Diagnosis Reports of Personal Injury

The diagnosis reports of personal injury may be able to point out the exact cause of the injury, but not always the liability of the defendant. For example you can consider the scan report of a broken knee bone.  This can point out the exact spot where the fracture originated. Based on his experience and the accident report, the medical expert will be able to tell how the accident caused the fracture. But he may not be able to point out whether it was due to the negligence of the claimant or the defendant.

  • In such cases the forensic reports will be helpful. They can relate the circumstantial evidences with the diagnosis reports and point out the liability of the defendant. But this process may take time.
  • In many of the cases it may not be possible to get the medical evidence immediately. This could be owing to the fact that treatment /diagnosis is takes considerable amount of time. An example for such case could be the personal injury caused by medical malpractice or food poisoning. Here the detection of exact cause takes several tests whose results may take time.
  • In such cases the claimant attorney may seek the support of forensic reports to establish the case in favor of his client. The effectiveness of such approach depends on the strength of evidences produced and the efficiency of scanning and analyzing such evidences by the forensic experts.

Claim Settlements

Either the defendant or the claimant can opt for settling the claims by making an offer to the other party. if they accept it, the attorneys can oversee the settlement outside the premises of the court of law. If they deny it and opt for court settlement, the case will be presented as legal litigation.

  • The clauses in the personal injury law allow for “offer settlements” between the parties, depending on the part of claim. The claimant may agree to reduce his claim sum. In such instances the decision has to be taken by the defendant.
  • In some instances the defendant may agree for a discounted sum from the net claim made by the claimant. In such instances the decision needs to be taken by the claimant.
