After 16 years in the industry, we have seen our fair share of extraordinary cases filled with stories, emotions, and at times, nearly unbelievable events.
With this experience, comes the danger of medical expert witness fatigue. Plaintiffs and Defendants are added to the memory bank, but begin to be grouped together in the mind. What was once shocking, becomes an essential case detail instead.
Because the well being of people hinge on our work, the emotional and psychological toll can at times be great. And that wears on a person.
To combat that, we only need to look around to our families and loved ones. We ask ourselves what we would want if someone we loved were a Plaintiff or Defendant in a case. This always gives new meaning to our work and drives us to be at our best.
