Process

1. REQUEST A REVIEW

To initiate a review through our office, forward the records to us at the below address.  Include a cover letter detailing your request with the records.

2. ASSIGN AN EXPERT

Once a case is received, it is reviewed by one of the INSPE M.D. partners.  The INSPE doctor then contacts the requester to discuss specifics of the case and assigns a specialist.  The case is then forwarded to the appropriate expert for review.

3. SCHEDULE

Our scheduling staff will arrange meetings, depositions, trials, exams, etc. between the expert and requester’s office. We will also confirm these dates between the parties as the event approaches. 

4. EXPERT CHARGES

Expert charges are typically based on an hourly rate, which varies depending on the type of expert, their credentialing and the service provided. Rate sheets are available upon request.

About

INSPE was founded in Chicago in 1981 by three physicians: Drs. Daniel Samo, Jorge del Castillo and Stephen Vogel. Dr. James Harlan joined the firm in 2012. The INSPE partners have many years of experience in arranging and facilitating medico-legal case reviews. The partners also conduct educational seminars for medical practicioners, attorneys and insurance companies, focusing on medico-legal issues.

We are affiliated with a large number of specialists in all fields of medicine. With this deep pool of consultants and our considerable contacts in the medical community, we are able to handle any type of claim that involves medical questions.
