Hotel Furniture Design
I am an attorney about to file a personal injury case against a large hotel chain. A burn injury occurred in a hotel room when a 2-year old child became entangled with or pulled on the electrical cord from a coffee maker, which could only be plugged into the front edge of the desk on which the coffee maker was located.
I would like to find an expert in "hotel furniture design or safety" who could testify that this configuration is unreasonably dangerous. Preferably, the expert's location is based in california.+16 Other Responses
Veteran Disability Claims
I am an accredited practitioner for a law firm based out of providence, rhode island.
We represent injured and disabled veterans across the country with their claims for va disability benefits. We frequently need expert medical opinions to help our clients gain entitlement to disability benefits. We currently represent a number of veterans seeking disability for various cardiac, psychiatric , and orthopedic conditions ; and therefore, we are seeking cardiologists, psychiatrist, and orthopedic doctors, that would be interested in working with us, reviewing one of these claims and providing us with a written opinion report.
The process would involve reviewing the veteran's claims file which can range from approximately 800 to 2500 pages, which includes not only medical records, but also procedural documents, and service records that will not be pertinent to a medical opinion. To help with the review, we provide a detailed outline of the evidence with page number references, highlighting both positive and negative facts. We also provide any applicable va diagnostic rating criteria and law to help with your opinion. Doctors/medical experts in va cases are never deposed, called to testify, or cross-examined by opposing counsel.
Finally, the standard of proof for medical opinions is lower than in a personal injury or medical malpractice case in that something only need be “as likely as not” as opposed to “a reasonable degree of medical certainty.” our firm promptly pays our experts for their work upon completion of a report, however, as this fee will eventually come out of the veteran's benefit award, we try to keep costs low.+undefined Other Responses
