The quote marks are not obvious how to use them.
After you click on reply, you highlight a sentence that you want quoted. Then you click on the word "quote" and the sentence drops to the new message space as a quotable sentence.
I wondered if such an opinion letter would be asked for before or during settlement talks. Or to prepare for court.
Could happen on any of the three occasions. There is no one finite answer to that question.
The number heard in the room was $450 to $900. Does that number tell you the type of opinion letter and at what stage a fee like that would be expected.
That tells me that the doctor is going to spend some time reviewing the patient file and dictating a report which he will then have to review for correctness and possibly edit. So, yes, that's a reasonable fee range, although I've seen them higher.
A physician gave an assessment in a patient online portal conversation. That assessment was falsely interpreted as a request by the injured to get the laywer to ask for an opinion. No such request was made. It was just pointed out that in the medical records (paper and online portal) there is an assessement that could possibly be of value to the claim.
You lost me.
Did the doctor think he was asked to write a report based on what the patient said, then wrote the report and sent it out with a bill?
What, exactly, is the concern.
