Medical experts such as radiologist, neurologists and orthopedists have long been employed in legal actions to explain the relevance of various medical records and radiographic films. What has been missing is a real focus on early contemporaneous treatment records (EMS/ER records) by actual ER doctors who are, in short, expert trauma diagnosticians. A new peer review expert in the field of personal injury litigation, the "TES" expert, fills that void and promises to be the first 'go to expert' in any PI/BI litigation.
This three part process allows for a complete and cogent Trauma Expert report on appropriate cases. The main goal is to review the EMS and/or ER records to see if there was the necessary clinical presentation of acute trauma to support the claimed acute injury.
Our TES report is arranged in two parts; the actual ER medical record findings and what the findings mean "Impression." Importanly, the "Impression" has its own very important two part analysis, that being not only what findings did present and their clinical significance (such as normal vital sings, normal range of motion, lack of pain or tenderness, etc.) but also what findings would have been expected upon exam by the EMS crew and /or ER staff if the claimed injuries indeed had a recent acute traumatic origin (i.e.-from the subject accident or incident). Again, in the expert opinion of Board Certified Emergency Medicine physicians who diagnose and treat such acute injuries on a daily basis-unlike orthopedists or neurologist.
ALL TES EXPERTS ARE LICENSED MEDICAL DOCTORS WHO ARE BOARD CERTIFIED IN EM (EMERGENCY MEDICINE) AND AVAILABLE FOR TESTIMONY
