By providing an honest assessment at the onset, you will know the actual merit of a case as well as any potential arguments by the opposing counsel, in order to make a more informed decision on how to proceed with the case.
Over 10,000 cases reviewed
With each case reviewed, the radiologist must perform the evaluation in a situation that simulates the initial reading radiologists practice conditions. Dr. Cousin considers each case as if he were the initial treating physician.
The Standard of Care
Identifying a breach from the Professional Standard is not something that Dr. Cousin does lightly. Determining a deviation from the guidelines of professional responsibilities is based on multiple factors including the available information at the time that the improper decision was made.
The medicolegal system is fraught with "what do you want me to say" experts. Honesty and character are paramount for any expert tasked with the responsibility to make a difference in the pursuit of medicolegal justice. A medicolegal expert is a "noble soldier of justice" and must always act as such
