Exposing Deceptive Defense Doctors gives you tactics, questions, arguments, and forms from a lawyer who has made a specialty out of deposing defense doctors for other attorneys. This book will enable you to reveal dishonesty, bias, over-reaching, and incompetence by defense doctors in multiple specialties.
Some defense doctors manipulate exams and spin the science. Luckily, their defenses are quite predictable, and can be readily dealt with once you learn how to recognize and counter them. Dorothy Clay Sims explains how, revealing the games DMEs play and showing you proven techniques and questions for making juries angry at the misrepresentation. This book exposes DME defense tactics, explains where they are vulnerable, provides citations to the underlying research, and then gives you the exact questions to use in depositions and trial examinations to exploit the weaknesses in DME testimony.
