How to Choose an Expert Witness
Choosing an expert witness can be a tiresome – but very important – process. Using an experienced expert witness who provides thorough and credible evaluations is only the first step. How the expert witness presents themselves to the public in a deposition, to a judge and to a jury are also considerations.
When to use a Life Care Plan
A Life Care Plan document provides an organized, concise plan of estimated reasonable and necessary (and reasonably certain to be necessary) current and future healthcare needs with the associated costs and frequencies of medications, goods and services and is developed for individuals who have experienced a catastrophic injury or have chronic healthcare issues.

Our medical experts at Kevin Trangle & Associates are often called to give a deposition of their medical evaluation. Typically, each attorney in a case – the plaintiff’s attorney and the defendant’s attorney – will present a medical expert’s evaluation that supports their case. The medical expert who has evaluated medical records in the case can be asked to explain their analysis in a deposition. Deposing a medical expert can be challenging for an attorney. One way to ensure the medical expert answers key questions is to prepare an outline of questions beforehand.
