How We Work
Planning and communication are keys to success
An initial consult with the attorney on the specific needs, details, and arguments of the case, as well as any deadlines (mediation, arbitration, settlement, deposition, or trial) that will need to be accounted for in scheduling. We will request all necessary case documents and materials to review that might include:
Treating physician's office notes or reports
Once the proposal has been finalized and approved, preliminary drafts of each exhibit will be produced and forwarded to the attorney and the case experts for review and revision requests. These drafts are typically in black and white to expedite the production process. Certification labels are included with the drafts for the experts to sign, verifying the exhibits as a fair and accurate depictions of the medical facts. (Bear in mind that this stage is the greatest variable in production time since it depends on the cooperation and schedules of the medical experts).
Once the preliminary drafts are approved, final color images are produced. Digital files and/or printed and mounted exhibit panels are delivered and any radiographic material is returned to the client.
We will review all of the supplied documents and provide you with a detailed description and cost estimate of the recommended exhibits or range of options for the case as well as a retainer request. The proposal serves as the basis for discussion with the client on the best solution to their needs. After the proposal is approved, we will request your expert's contact information if we are to be responsible for interacting with the case experts.
