Are you a medical treatment provider in Alberta who needs help understanding the legal aspect of personal injury claims? If so, Litwiniuk & Company can help.
We work with all types of medical professionals including doctors, nurses, specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and holistic and alternative treatment providers. We understand that, as a medical professional, the prospect of getting involved in a personal injury claim can be daunting, confusing, or even frightening. We offer the following services and seminars to our partners in healthcare:
- Educational seminars about Medicine and the Law
- One-on-one educational sessions
- Understanding the Minor Injury Regulation (the “Cap”)
- Understanding the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols
- Understanding Section B and Accident Benefits Claims
- On-call advice and direction
- How the Litigation Process Works
- Detecting Malingering and Fraud
The prospect of having to testify in court is unappealing to everyone, and medical professionals are no exception. Rest assured that when you work with an experienced personal injury law firm like Litwiniuk & Company, the chances of ending up in court, testifying before a judge, are less than 1%. Most of the time, all we need from medical treatment providers is a copy of the treatment chart. In some cases, we will request a more detailed report, for which we will gladly pay you a reasonable fee in advance. In the very unlikely event that you are called upon to testify on behalf of one of our clients, our seasoned trial lawyers will walk you through every step of the way, so you’ll feel fully prepared. In any case, we simply want your unbiased professional opinion about the health of our client and your patient.
