Physicians Helping Attorneys Helping People ®
We provide medical consultation on legal cases, from minor legal concerns to intensive surgical issues, work status, and injury causation. With over 38 years as a practicing orthopaedic surgeon, David Gandy, MD, CIME, FACS, FAAOS added the title of JD to his name in 2008 and has served as a medical consultant and expert witness on legal cases ever since. The value of his input and assistance in implementing legal strategies has proven itself valuable to plaintiff’s and defense attorneys, insurance carriers, and workers’ compensation judges and attorneys. By preparing medical cases and facilitating case coordination, we can optimize medical issues in just a few hours of consultation. We look forward to working with you to prepare strategies to provide consultation on your medical legal concerns.
Dr. Gandy is an actively practicing adult/pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon. For over 30 years, his practice has emphasized Worker’s Compensation injuries, in the care of those injuries and the evaluation of workers in the context of independent medical exams and second opinions.
We provide prompt service with reports in any form requested to insure clear and concise understanding of pertinent details. Together, we will discuss what will best serve the attorney’s needs at the outset—and we’re happy to make any mid-course changes when needed.
Our business model makes medical consultation affordable in almost all of your cases. We have purposefully kept our fees reasonable allowing you to consult with us without concern about budgetary issues in the case. In many cases, we can optimize your medical issues in just a few hours.
Dr. Gandy has found that as he works with more and more attorneys, he has been asked to provide many medically related services. In other words, each attorney with whom he consults finds different and varied medical services for him to provide based on the unique way they approach medical issues in cases. He may be more useful to one attorney providing case coordination and to another attorney by providing up to date medical journal articles in advance of questioning a medical expert. Because he is very aware of your expenses, Dr. Gandy has made the decision to keep fees reasonable. Many attorneys use medical consultants only when confronted with problems in the case. Dr. Gandy suggests you bring him in at the outset of your representation as this approach has almost always added value to the case. Think about how he could help you to increase case value and save you time while not breaking the bank.
