Compensation Court Testimony

In many personal injury cases (such as automobile accidents-no fault, slip and falls, construction accidents, etc.) and in most workers compensation cases, it becomes necessary for the treating doctor to testify as an expert witness for the patient. An expert witness is defined as a person who is qualified, either by actual experience or by careful study, to form definite opinions with respect to a division of science, a branch of art, or a department of trade. Testimony is extremely important and can mean the difference in thousands (very possibly millions) of dollars to the patient (called the claimant). It can also determine the decisions made on workers’ compensation cases and have a huge impact on the treatment and monetary benefits received by the injured worker.

In personal injury cases that ultimately go to trial, the treating doctor may be called to testify on behalf of their patient as an expert witness. The doctor Workers Compensation Court Testimony | Workers Comp Court | Brooklynmust explain to a jury in a clear, concise, educated manner the mechanics of how the injury occurred, the severity of the injury, and how it will affect the patient’s activities of daily living. The doctor will also make a determination of whether this injury is permanent. If the doctor is competent and able to persuade the jury that the injury is severe, it may have a huge impact on the monetary results of the case. Testimony is also very common and necessary for workers compensation patients (people injured on the job). Quite often, workers compensation cases are controverted. Many issues may arise such as how the injury occurred or the extent of the injury (including what part of the body is affected and whether the injury is permanent or not). A competent, treating doctor that is certified by New York State to treat Workers’ Compensation patients must testify properly and concisely for the injured patient. This testimony will have a large impact on the compensation received by the patient and can also affect the treatment required by the injured worker.

Most doctors won’t testify. They either choose not to, fear to do so, or simply do not have the credentials or experience. Many doctors, that do testify, do it poorly. On the other hand, Dr. Jeff J. Mollins, and all referring doctors, testify as experts. All doctors not only have impressive credentials (Board Certification, post graduate education, etc.) but many years in practice.

  • Dr. Mollin’s was great! I have not seen a chiropractor for almost a year and recent accidents have left me in way too much pain. I decided to go with him for convenience sake because he is on the way between home and work. I’m very glad I did because he was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. He knows just where to help me and has done great so far. I look forward to making him my regular chiropractor.

    Nicole S.
  • What can I say, great doc – competent, has a personality, gets the job done + he’s a Yankees fan; the bonus, for a busy person like myself, I am seen within 5 mins of apt time…priceless…..a big win, since I hate docs that make you wait 30-45 mins to see them.

    Kirk M.
  • I think I’m in love, he was the best chiropractor I have ever had. He knows exactly what needs to be done. my appointment was 9:15, i was in his office @ 9:16 that alone makes you want to come back. I didn’t want it to end.

    Michael N.
  • I am never disappointed in Jeff’s service. He is a truly great man.

    Bobby K.
  • I’ve seen several chiropractors over the years, and it’s obvious when they’re just in the business to squeeze as much money out of their clients as possible by requiring visits every few days (for minor ailments). Dr. Mollins was excellent in this regard. He acknowledged that I was in minor pain and said he could help, but suggested I come in again whenever I’d like to. I really appreciated the lack of pressure. But most of all, I liked the treatment. I felt like a million bucks after my adjustment. Highly recommended!

    Emily B.
  • A notification over phone or email that they only take cash or checks would be great, prior to appointment visit.

    Tony V.
  • Dr Jeff Mollins is unlike any casual Chiropractor. There are professionals that simply go about their life committing to their job as an obligation rather than an interest. Dr Jeff Mollins is genuinely interested in his patients as a friend looks out for another friend. I’ve had neck and upper back pain for as long as I remember. But Dr Jeff Mollins was able to identify my issues and help walk me through what he was going to do to tackle the issue. I felt aware and comfortable. I had some slight pain on my left shoulder an hour after my appointment due to the major adjustments that had been made to my spine. I called Dr Jeff Mollins and he helped me right away and even emailed me to check up on me again. Dr Jeff Mollins goes above and beyond to guarantee the satisfaction of his patients and I got all of this from only one visit! Definitely looking forward to visit Dr Jeff Mollins office again and I highly recommend him.
