Frequently Asked Questions

What is the first step to engage our services?
After a retainer is negotiated, records can be submitted by mail or by electronic transfer. I prefer to see any imaging (MRI, CT, X-rays) myself whenever possible.
What is the typical turn-around time for case review?
Once records have been received, same week review and feedback is our standard.
What is our Fee Schedule?
This is broken down into communications, record review, report preparation, deposition, and testimony time. This is available upon request. Fees are based only on time dedicated to the case.
Has Dr. Busfield done more cases of behalf of the Plaintiff or Defense?
We have been involved in cases on behalf of both Plaintiff and Defense, and do not favor either. Each case evaluated objectively by its merits, and supported by a literature review when appropriate.
