Tom T, Janice and many others, is this not what the site is about. It is nice to see helpful information instead of useless remarks.

A fee paid private investigator would furnish the requested type information after five minutes of research. The attorneys should be aware of that alternative. I work for attorneys all the time and get paid by them for furnishing help and information. They in turn pass the fee to their file as an expense to be paid by the client. If the attorneys are desperate and needy email me privatly and I will find the info for free.

Folks, one of our members asked for help in locating a specialized witness. Unfortunatley I don't have a suggestion, but if anyone does, please e-mail RJ. I don't think insinuations, inuendos, or trying to find out why he needs this witness is any of our business. We wonder why the Republicans and Demorcrats are acting like children and then a simple request to us gets out of hand. We are professionals and should conduct ourselves as such. Life is much to short for this folks, lets help each other as much as possible.

I am not a moderator nor have any official capacity with this site, other than pay dues.
Right now an individual has asked for assistance in a matter. I know nothing about the circumstances of the request, as I am sure the rest of those responding don't. I know that in the past RJ has provoked some, but I do not believe it was with ill intent. I send to him some information that might help. Many of you request help on storm site or on the internet, so what is the problem? Other than to show your boredom?

rj. sorry I can't assist you with an expert witness. Certainly a reasonable request for help, the uncalled for comments should simply be taken for what they are, worthless.

No I am not working for an attorney. Please don't pry into this matter if you can't help you can't help. I am not earning any income from this so if you can't or won't help please do not reply and if you can help please e-mail your response directly to me and please do not post it here.

Why can't I make a simple inquiry for help without being asked 50,000 questions and have someone insinuate something. Everyone talks about this being a good site to ask questions and get help. There are no alternative motives to this I am simply doing a favor for someone and I am not at liberty to discuss anything about the case. That includes the insurance companies, attorneys, plaintive or defendants and anyone else involved so please leave it at that.

Think we have the picture now. You are working for the attorney!
Business is a little slow for you.
Since it doesn't sound like an insurance company looking for the witness, GOOD LUCK!

What a bunch of hockey.

Dr. Z.:

You don't know or understand anything concerning this case. Therefore, you have no idea or knowledge to base your statements on. I will not argue or disclose anything about the case to you or anyone else publicly. However, I will tell you this much, because the area of medicine is so specialized and the geographical area in which the witness must be from is relatively small, the attorneys are having a very difficult time finding an expert witness. Due to the time element involved, my background and connection to the case, I was asked to assist in this one process of the case. Posting on this board is only one area that I am exploring in my search for an expert witness. By the way the attorneys are currently pursuing an extensive search and their request to me is only supplementing their ongoing search.

Please I am only asking for help in locating an expert witness, I am not seeking any legal advice from you or anyone else. So Dr. Z, unless you know of an expert in the field of medicine that is described in my original post, please do not make any further replies to me concerning this topic. I know that you are well meaning in the advice that you are giving, however, in this case your advice is not required and could prevent someone else that may know of an expert to not respond to my request for help. Thank you for your cooperation.
Dr Z

Any insurance defense attorney worth a grain of salt knows who the expert witnesses are or where to find them. Why reinvent the wheel? That is still their job to locate the expert witnesses for court, and to determine if there is anything in the witness's background which could come out on cross examination which could embarass as well as bury your case. Whether you like it or not, or can get past your ego or not, that is why an adjuster should not attempt to practice law without a license or attempt to handle a claim which is clearly beyond his professional capability.

Dr Zhivago or any one else that may be interested:

In this particular case I have full authority to help locate an expert witness. Due to the field of specialty it has been difficult to locate anyone. No I am not going to settle this case I am only assisting.

Rj, when a case file gets to the point of needing expert witnesses who might testify in court, it is the carrier's attorney's function to select the expert witness and not the adjuster. The legal profession is quite familiar with the many many expert witnesses available for courtroom testimony as well as their reputation for success.

Sounds to me like you are trying to handle a file beyond your professional capability not to mention your limited capacity of carrier authority.
