Understand the Medical Complexities of Your Case
Extensive clinical and operational experience is used to thoroughly understand the medical issues in each case. Time is used efficiently to research, organize and screen cases, interview clients or witnesses, and review medical records while you and your staff concentrate on the legal aspects of a case, while providing these services at a fraction of the cost charged by Physicians and other experts.
My services are helping attorney’s every day to eliminate the potential of litigation failure by uncovering and interpreting critical medical issues. Kathleen Martin reviews and “translates” the medical record, prepares and develops a concise chronological time-line that highlights critical events, and delivers a professional report that includes medical research, definitions and a summary of the clients injuries, treatments and outcomes, including chronologies as indicated.
