Expert Witness Guidance: Preparing Medico-legal Reports

This document updates guidance from the BOA Professional Practice Committee, previously published in the Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics in March and June 2015. Specific updates include a description of types of witness, consideration of the widespread use of online storage and download of medical records and imaging, the use of billing software, electronic rather than paper reports during and after the Covid-19 pandemic, conduct of the Joint Statement, and the rise of Medco for low value soft tissue injury RTA claims.
