What experts will review medical records for my child?
To pursue a case, we consult with experts across the country. We require expert support that the medical care provided was unreasonable and not in accordance with what was required to pursue a medical malpractice case in court. In addition to our internal nursing review, experts in the same specialty as to the care in question will be consulted for their opinion as to whether the care provided was appropriate.
In a birth injury case, standard of care expert support can include testimony from many experts, including: Ob-Gyn doctors, maternal-fetal medicine doctors, placental pathologists, nurse midwives, labor and delivery nurses, neonatologists, neuroradiologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, and neonatal nurses. In establishing the cause of a baby’s injuries, pediatric neurologists, neonatologists and pediatricians are often consulted.
In a minor medical malpractice claim, standard of care experts in the same specialty as the negligent caregivers will be called to give testimony, this can include cardiologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, surgeons, and radiologists, among others.
With regard to long term care for an injured baby, child or adult, a life care planning expert, typically a physical medicine and rehab doctor or a nurse, will be consulted to plan for the future. After the care and support needed is determined, the cost of that care and support is forecasted by an expert economist.
