  • What do you charge for a case review and proposal and how long does it take?
    Nothing. We will review your case and provide you with a detailed written proposal at no charge. It typically takes 24-48 hours to review and draft a proposal, once all materials are received. Proposals can be mailed or emailed.
  • What do I need to provide you to review my case?
    We will need the following to provide an accurate estimate of exhibits and their cost: all imaging studies (x-ray, CT, MRI, MRA, etc.) preferably on CD accompanying radiology reports medical expert narrative surgical reports admitting and discharge summaries treating physician summaries
  • How much lead time do you need to produce my trial exhibits?
    This will depend on how complicated your case is and how many exhibits you will need to communicate your issues. You should allow for at least 3 weeks lead time before the first date you will need the finished trial exhibits (arbitrations, deposition, mediation, settlement conference, trial, etc.). This allows time for review, proposal, preliminary sketches, changes, and most importantly, timely review by your medical expert.
  • How much do custom exhibits cost?
    Pricing for custom medical exhibits varies based on the complexity of the exhibit (number of images on a panel, subject complexity, etc.) and their final output (digital, printed and mounted exhibit). Most anatomical exhibits cost less than $950 printed and mounted 30x40. Surgical exhibits range between $1100-1400 per panel, printed and mounted 30x40. Pricing for digital only exhibits are less.
  • If I don't have 3 weeks, can I still get an exhibit?"
    Yes! Depending on our production schedule, cases with tighter timelines can be accomodated.
  • Do you charge RUSH fees?
    Yes. With extremely tight turn around times, (less than 10 days), RUSH fees are added to the cost. Tight turn around times require rescheduling and deferring production of previously scheduled cases or the need for overtime and weekend work scheduling. Those fees cannot be passed on to clients that provide an appropriately scheduled case. There is also additional stress incurred by staff, experts–and you–to produce high quality, error-free exhibits within a limited time frame.
  • If I send my imaging studies on CD, will I get them back?"
    Yes. All imaging studies are returned with the final product.
  • What is a DiCom file and why do you need them?
    DiCom stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine. It is a format that allows for medical images to be exchanged with the data and quality necessary for clinical use across platforms and institutions. Medical imaging equipment manufacturers use the DICOM format to distribute images along with details about the patient, the scan that generated the image and the characteristics of the image itself. If you supply all relevant imaging studies in this format, it allows for the highest resolution images and the widest range of options for image production and manipulation (3D reconstruction). We prefer imaging studies in this format rather than .jpg or.pdf since those formats are typically low resolution and have limited use.
  • Do I only need a medical exhibit if I am going to trial?
    No. Many clients incorporate their trial exhibits into the entire life cycle of a case's preparation. A clear demonstrative can be just as effective in resolving a case at a mediation, arbitration, or settlement conference, and frequently results in a higher settlement or arbitration value to cases that resolve at those stages. Each stage of the production of your trial exhibits can be useful to mitigate the cost to the client while adding value: approved black and white drafts, finished color exhibits (digital or small color prints), printed and mounted final exhibit panels.
  • How do I get my medical exhibits admitted at trial?
    There are typically 2 important questions that your testifying medical expert needs to answer: "Is this a fair and accurate depiction of the plaintiff's injuries/treatment/surgery?" and "Will these exhibits help you to explain your testimony?" If their answer is yes to these questions, the exhibits should be admissable.
  • What are my options for exhibit formats?
    Pretty much whatever you need. We can provide you the final color exhbits in digital format, at projection resolution, or in a range of printed and/or mounted formats. If you opt for large format (30x40) trial exhibits, in addition to the panels, we supply a digital projection file as well as (4) 8.5x11 color prints. Most clients opt for the digital file or the large trial boards but we can provide smaller printed/mounted options for conferences or mediations.
