MedMal Consulting provides medical litigation case reviews and expert witness referral services. MedMal is committed to supporting the mission of the AAJ. Therefore, we provide our services exclusively for plaintiff attorneys.

MedMal Consulting physicians screen and determine the merits of medical malpractice cases. This includes analyzing the strengths and helping to anticipate the defenses in nursing home neglect and personal injury cases. The result is the efficient, cost-effective establishment of a fact-based plaintiff’s position in even the most complex injury and medical malpractice cases.

We offer a variety of services related to medical expertise. Our physicians assist attorneys in developing case-specific, rules-of-the-road cross-examination questions and prepare witnesses for depositions and trial. Physicians in the United States and India will prepare a complete medical record chronology, including FREE bookmarks and hyperlinks for only $35/hour. A free trial is also available for this service. For expert witness referrals, we work with the most comprehensive, pre-screened and well-qualified national expert witness network. Our contacts are available for trial and for signing letters of merit when necessary.

Established in 1992 by Dr. Herman, MedMal Consulting has provided physician medical reviews in medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, and personal injury cases. Our work has assisted firms like yours in obtaining more than $198 million dollars in verdicts and settlements in medical malpractice and nursing home cases.

We also handle a wide range of other types of cases that require medical opinions or analysis. Chief among these are motor-vehicle accidents, especially involving commercial vehicles, and premises injuries (slip-and-fall).

Armed with the facts and partnered with leading experts, our clients are much better positioned to pursue justice against the professionally diverse and thoroughly funded legal teams that represent powerful insurers and large corporations.

Physician Expert Services For Attorneys In All Practice Areas

Pre-Screened Specialists and Experienced Professionals in Multiple Medical Disciplines

Your physician medical director pairs your case with the exact type of expert partner you need to succeed.

Medical businesses are your adversaries and they’re in control of the knowledge you need. Insurance teams fight tenaciously to protect their clients. As a plaintiff’s attorney, you need someone with at least as much knowledge and experience reviewing medical histories, establishing standards of care, and providing expert testimony if you want to level the field.

On the auto insurance side, it’s typically a hardball, flat-offer business. That goes double for commercial accidents. On your side, your client faces a lifetime of continued suffering — that flat offer isn’t going to cut it. Our medical experts help you uncover and communicate the specific factual foundation from which you can pursue what your client truly deserves.


Slip-and-fall cases tend to meet staunch resistance from corporations and their insurance companies. Sometimes, a medical record is all that unequivocally links an injury to a specific incident. Our premises injury slip-and-fall medical experts help you investigate and illustrate that link so that justice is served.

An entire lifetime of medical history, a precarious set of conditions, and a mountain of internal paperwork — that’s just the typical nursing home injury case. When things get complex, you need a competent, compassionate medical expert to help you cut through the noise and show the facts as they truly are.
