Presumptive Law Claim Analysis
NAMJ has an impressive team of scientists, clinicians, and physicians. Our team provides timely and invaluable services to insurers, TPAs, and municipalities faced with claims pursuant to presumptive laws, such as Texas Government Code Chapter 607. (Chapter 607 provides a presumption of causality for firefighters and emergency medical technicians for certain diseases, including heart disease, tuberculosis, respiratory illness, and cancer.)
NAMJ utilizes a comprehensive consultative approach to this type of claim, including reports based on medical and scientific knowledge of the specific type of cancer involved in this claim and its potential causality, as well as the specific claimant’s medical history..
To bring each matter to a successful conclusion requires a coordinated effort between the attorney, his staff, case reviewers, expert witnesses, and client. We understand the special needs and time and financial constraints of law firms who specialize in medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability, toxic exposures and worker’s compensation, especially in the light of the new tort reform laws that are taking effect across the country.
Our focus is to provide an efficient service that will lower your expenses and unwarranted exposures and offer you the best medical knowledge and expertise available.
