Our research has indicated that most Attorneys handling personal injuries, medical negligence and other medico-legal work, spend exorbitant amounts seeking a high disability rating. Most of the reports issued by medical specialists, either do not have a Whole Person Impairment, or if there, it is incorrectly calculated, or even have multiple WPI values that have not been consolidated. Our intermediary services ensures that there is coordinated and consolidated WPI having only referred to inhouse specialists that are the most relevant. This, saves you money!
