“Clearly one hopes that a medical expert will not only be qualified to conduct a competent assessment but will also be independent and unbiased in formulating his/her opinion. But what if he or she is not?” (Bakalenikov v. Semkiw, 2010 ONSC 4928 (CanLII) — 2010-09-15)

“The value of these independent assessments is directly proportionate to the independence and quality that courts and arbitrators attach to them.” [Rocco Guerriero B.Sc., DC, FRCCSS(C), FCCPOR(C), FCCO(C)] Canadian Underwriter Dec 20, 2012  Letter to the Editor: Independent medical examinations provide “necessary check and balance”

Our Adverse comment page is not an exhaustive list or search of adverse comments. These are just examples of the comments of Judges and Arbitrators, the triers-of-fact, who decide the quality of the experts and their evidence. Surely we can trust in their words.
