Interpreting Physical Therapy Notes

Written by: Physical Therapy Expert Witness
Expert No. 3269

Click here to view this Expert's CV

Sending a patient to physical therapy does not always guarantee that they are going to receive the same treatment. In fact, the same patient with the same diagnosis sent to varying practices most likely will receive a variety of different treatment techniques. While all aimed at decreasing pain, increasing strength, and improving the patients‟ function, each therapist has their own different methods and techniques in which they feel will lead to the patient‟s recovery. Even when different therapists see the same patient in the same therapy practice, they often come up with a different plan of care for the patient to follow. ...Read More...

Noise: A Worldwide Problem Requires Legal Assistance

Written by: Noise Pollution Expert Witness
Expert No. 999

That our society is becoming noisier and that more people are being disturbed by noise is evidenced by the growing number of books, chapters and articles being written about noise and their call for greater quiet in our lives. In 2010, the New York Times reviewed three books dealing with noise and the quest for quiet and I contributed a chapter on noise to two books dealing with environmental issues, as well as an article on noise to The Corsini Encyclopedia of Psychology (Weiner, I. B. and Craighead, W. E., 2010). Additionally, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has recently added a noise section on its website http://www.epa.gov/air/noise.html in the last few years other books have been written about noise; noise chapters are increasingly appearing in books dealing with environmental hazards; and the media has paid close attention to stories addressing the harmful effects of noise on people. The books, chapters, articles and media stories on noise speak eloquently to the adverse effects of noise to people's mental and physical well-being. However, actions to lessen the din have not followed this greater awareness that noise is hazardous to health. ... Read More ...

The Court Systems and Types of Actions

Successful waterfront or intermodal transportation litigation involving personal injury, vessel/equipment damage or loss, and cargo claims requires knowledge of the laws and venues covering the industry.

First comes Admiralty Court. This venue is based on international treaties, many going back centuries, and updated at the UN in the recent past. Maritime matters are treated differently than normal litigation because of jurisdiction. The admiralty system is designed to allow the adjudication of legal matters across both national and state boundaries using a court system established at the federal level.

Workers Compensation statutes covering all seamen and most, but not all, waterfront workers has evolved with the same jurisdictional considerations as Admiralty Law. Waterfront workers pass constantly from dock to ship across international boundaries when ... Read More ...

On June 5, 2009 a devastating fire occurred in the ABC Day Care Facility in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico while most of the 142 children were taking their afternoon nap. This was a federally funded, privately operated facility, in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, a city of about 700,000 people. Forty-nine (49) children died from the fire as a result of smoke inhalation and/or burns.

The Supreme Court of Justice (Mexico) contracted with the Consolidated Consultants Company to investigate the fire. The McMullen Company conducted the investigation to determine the cause, origin and spread of the fire within the building complex. In addition, the investigation incorporated many other aspects, including an analysis of the fire safety codes and standards pertaining to use, as well as life safety features of the building complex. The investigation focused on the cause, origin, and spread of the fire, and the requirements of the applicable National, State and City Codes, Regulations and Standards to conditions in the building complex involved in the fire. ...
