Medical experts perform many vital roles in civil litigation. In a personal injury matter, the expert can help the attorney understand important medical issues central to the case, such as the nature and extent of the injury, causation, the impact of preexisting conditions, and prognosis of future medical needs and costs. In cases of medical malpractice, the use of a medical expert by the plaintiff is required in most jurisdictions before a lawsuit may even be filed. In cases involving an allegedly defective medical device, a medical expert familiar with the device can opine whether a given injury was due to a product defect or operator error. In all cases, the oral and written testimony of an effective medical expert can inform and educate the judge or jury as trier of fact and guide them toward a decision on liability, damages and other key issues.

Dr. Jeffrey Oppenheimer is a trained actor and voice-over artist who delivers opinions in a well-articulated fashion that commands attention and enhances understanding.

- What is the plaintiff’s prospect for medical recovery, and how much more treatment is needed?
- How much pain and suffering is the plaintiff experiencing?
