American Medical Experts offers unique services at low flat rate fees. When we opened our doors over thirty years ago, our primary goal was to benefit attorneys with our Complete Case Reviews and Expert Witness Reports. Therefore, we are dedicated to containing your upfront costs when we review your cases and provide you with expert witnesses.

We do so by reducing your fee to the lowest flat rate possible and absorbing the cost for both our Complete Case Reviews and our Expert Witness Reports. Instead of charging you and your clients an hourly rate (which can range $400—600 per hour or higher), we only charge $695 for Complete Case Reviews and $995 for Expert Witness Reports. For more details about these prices and the low rates for our other valuable services, see the table above.

In addition to drastically reducing your upfront fees with our low flat rate fee schedule, American Medical Experts helps you screen your cases so that you only invest your time and resources on solid cases. We have already served over 50,000 attorneys with our exceptional services; we look forward to assisting you.

 

***Pursuant to our fee schedule, initially the Expert Witness Report is sent to you unsigned; our service fee is paid only after you receive a favorable Medical Expert Opinion and/or you need the name and signed report of the Expert Witness. Depending on specialty, this Expert Witness Service Fee ranges from $695—$2695, the specific fee depends on the complexity of the case as well as the expert’s specialty.

When you have obtained an Expert Witness Report from AME at our reduced rates, you have an Expert Witness who has spent time reviewing your case, preparing his or her report(s) and is ready to move forward (deposition, trial, etc) on your case as your Expert Witness.

** If missing documents are requested to complete the review, or sent to AME after the review of your case has begun, or if additional work is requested, (i.e. Affidavit of Merit, etc.) hourly rates will be applied and billed (Complete Case Review $600 per hour and Expert Witness Reports rates are based on the Medical Expert's fee schedule). In many cases, the items for review will be billed and payment must be received prior to the review of the materials. In some cases, as with additional work or research requested, the billing may be after the work is complete. The time (hours for review) for additional documents to be reviewed will be based on an approximate time frame from our Director at a minimum of 1 hour. If the time to review the documents exceeds the approximate time, payment for the additional time will be required prior to releasing the report(s) to the Attorney.

 

For the convenience of your billing and accounting records, AME accepts all major credit cards:

*Prices reflect the September 2016 Rate | expires September 30, 2016

*If a specific request such as the location, school affiliation, etc., of an expert, our reduced fee schedule may not apply.
