OUR MEDICAL EXPERTS
Med Expert Witness experts are available to review materials, radiological studies, depositions and other relevant records and documents. They consult with attorneys, insurance and corporate representatives in evaluating their cases and rendering opinions. Our medical experts will provide written reports and affidavits upon request. They are also available for independent medical exams, hearings, deposition and trial testimony when needed.
Our service of providing medical expert witnesses and consultants is built on the simple premise that courtroom success is not only about righteousness, it’s about building your case with compelling testimony. This is the motivation behind everything we do as a company.
Our experts include MD’s, MD PhD’s, PhD’s, RN’s, Physical therapists, Speech and Occupational Therapists, Chiropractors and other medical specialists and health care professionals. They are board certified in their specialized areas of expertise encompassing the entire spectrum of professional degrees, licenses and areas of practice. They range from current or former department chiefs and/or medical school faculty in medical research, teaching to private practitioners. Our experts spend most of their time in the practice of medicine, research, publishing and teaching and devote only a small portion of their time to expert witness pursuits.
All medical experts must have strong clinical credentials. This ensures expert witness credibility from record review through deposition and trial testimony. Having medical experts who are board-certified in their specialties and in active clinical practice ensures authoritative medical opinions and effective litigation support.
FREE CONSULTATION IN SELECTING AN EXPERT
Med Expert Witness provides a free, initial telephone screening of each case. This highly specialized task is handled personally by the director, Jane R. Leavy, R.N., Esq., along with the assistance of the administrative and medical support staff. Prior to expert selection, there is an assessment of the case, it’s merits, defenses, identification and framing of the legal issues of liability, causation and damages, methodical strategy and how the medicine applies to the individual case. We discuss with you your criteria for location, credentials, experience, conflicts and availability for customized professional service. Early and proper identification of the requirements and needs of a case are cost effective and can determine the outcome. We assist in evaluating what materials, records, radiological studies, photographs and legal documents will be required for review by the expert in formulating the basis of the expert’s opinions.
Med Expert Witness experts are located nationwide in various areas of specialty. They are available to travel for the purpose of deposition and trial testimony, hearings or examination of an individual or evidence. Our experts are highly qualified, courteous and professional.
Upon identification of the appropriate expert for your individualized case, Med Expert Witness will recommend an expert(s) and by e-mail or fax transmission, send the proposed expert’s curriculum vitae for the client’s approval along with the retainer contract. We welcome the client’s input, questions or concerns regarding expert selection.
After receipt of the client’s approval of the medical expert and contract for their professional services, Med Expert Witness will assist, coordinate, follow up and continue its involvement as a liaison between the client and the medical expert until the conclusion of the case. When you entrust your case to Med Expert Witness, you are guaranteed ongoing professional case supervision cognizant of deadlines, time constraints and cost effectiveness. We take due care to ensure that all records and documents are kept confidential within the possession of Med Expert Witness and our experts. Our level of involvement is largely determined by the needs of both the client and the medical expert. The average time for case evaluation and review is 1 to 4 weeks, however in exceptional situations an expedited review can be completed in an effectual manner. The expert will speak directly to the client to fully discuss his or her opinions after they have completed their review. The expert may find reasons for a case to go forward, and if so, will continue their involvement until the case is concluded, or the expert may discuss factors against risking time, effort and money in continuing the case.
There are no hidden costs. Prior to engaging our expert and forwarding all relevant medical records and documents, we will clearly discuss the fees associated with your case. A retainer is required prior to the expert beginning his or her evaluation. There is NO charge for our services until you designate or retain an expert we have referred to you. We bill hourly for the use of our experts. Fees are variable and depend on the medical specialty involved, the complexity of the case, the volume of the records to be reviewed and the time permitted for completion.
All fees assessed by our medical expert will be billed through Med Expert Witness. When you retain the expert, you work together directly, and we submit invoices to you as work is performed. Should any questions arise concerning our expert’s opinion, the experienced professional staff at Med Expert Witness will serve as a liaison between you and the expert.
In extraordinary circumstances a flat fee may be negotiated for a specific task.
There are no contingency fees of any kind. Medical experts have the most credibility when they have no financial stake in the outcome. Therefore, Med Expert Witness does not enter into any contingency fee arrangements with our clients.

“The folks at Med Expert Witness.com have proven invaluable at locating the right expert for our cases.

has saved the day for us several times. The friendly personal followup also avoids stress when trial is around the corner and you need to get it done. I highly recommend Med Expert Witness.com.”

“In 2008 my husband’s teeth were damaged during surgery in Leduc, Alberta, Canada. Initially, he was merely going to get his teeth fixed and send a complaint to the College of Physicians and Surgeons. However, his problems persisted so he decided to launch a lawsuit. As I have worked in the legal community for over 35 years we decided to handle the case ourselves. To meet the legal tests we needed an expert, and after months of searching we met with negative results. As a last resort I contacted Jane Leavy of MedExpertwitness.com – She did an exceptional job. We provided her the history and from there she immediately began a search to find a doctor with the highest qualifications, experience and integrity. Throughout my dealings with her she was extremely efficient and always remained cognisant of the costs. Those following in our footsteps of needing an expert simply won’t find anyone better – I highly recommend Jane and her company.”
-Mr. & Mrs. Richard Doris Alberta, Canada
“As an expert witness with little extra time, no secretary, and clearly no business acumen, Jane was an outstanding liaison to ensure that all of the paperwork and follow-up were completed and timely. I believe she was outstanding in managing the expert to attorney connection.”
