Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
You suffered a serious fractured arm in your car accident. Your case is coming up for trial and you want to know why it's necessary to bring in a doctor to testify about your x-rays.
You believe it's really obvious and that all you need to do is put the x-ray up on a lightbox and the jury will immediately see your fractures. How could they not see your broken bones?
It is necessary to have an experienced doctor read and interpret x-rays and then explain to the jury what is seen on the x-rays. Most people do not have the necessary training, unless they are a radiologist, to read and interpret x-rays.
Even if it's obvious that there is a fracture visible on an x-ray, there may be other subtle findings that the doctor will need to describe to the jury that they otherwise would not know about.
In addition, a medical expert will be able to describe the effect of that injury and what type of treatment you may need in the future. He will also be able to describe the medical care you received from the time of the accident up until the time of trial.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
