How is analysis completed?

The analytic process includes review of all relevant medical records, evaluation of relevant physical evidence, and review of statements and depositions of percipient witnesses and litigants. When appropriate, independent quantitative analysis, computer generated three dimensional biomechanical modeling and research into the literature is completed. Objective conclusions are then developed which address what injuries were reasonable or possible, explain the sequence of how an injury or pathologic process was sustained, and determine what role the litigants may have had in causing those injuries.
