ADDITIONAL WORK REQUESTED*
Additional work requested for an expert witness (i.e. Additional Record Review, Addendum Reports, Affidavits, Depositions & Trial Testimony) after the expert has completed his or her review and unsigned report (verbal or written) or the signed report are billed at additional rates through our office. These rates for additional services are billed outside our two-step process and fee schedule noted online. Depending on the additional work requested, i.e. hourly for additional record review and comment, half day or full day rates for Depositions or trial, etc. are billed and invoiced through our office and paid in advance of the work as an estimate based on the request. If the estimate does not cover the time or work requested, an invoice will follow to complete the balance due.

As you know, American Medical Experts, LLC cannot guarantee the availability of the experts as well as the opinions of an expert, how well they will do under cross-examination, or how they will do in deposition or trial testimony and we cannot guarantee their level of future cooperation.
Please note that all future arrangements for this Expert’s anticipated professional time and services, including any additional written reports/ addendum reports, deposition, travel, and trial testimony, are pre-paid by you or your client; please contact our office right away to get dates, times and requirements so we can check and try to secure the expert’s availability. The retaining attorney is expected to furnish all relevant documents and materials to the expert witness directly as they are obtained and to provide all requested documents, materials and examinations as discovery rules permit; this is not the responsibility of American Medical Experts.
