Preliminary Damages Assessment Tool
The Preliminary Damages Assessment Tool is similar to a Medical Cost Analysis but based on a limited record review with no lengthy report and therefore takes less time to complete. It is especially helpful to attorneys and/or insurance carriers early in a case when attempting to determine what the future might hold for an individual, identifying exposure, preparing for mediation /settlement conferences, and/or setting reserves and is meant to be utilized as an internal tool. It is not offered for expert testimony.
