Working With a Medical Malpractice Expert Witness

Clients usually start with a free consultation, during which they will talk about the issues of the case, and Dr. Chundru will provide his feedback. This approach allows clients to learn early in the process whether and how Dr. Chundru can support their work.

When clients are ready to engage Dr. Chundru’s services, he may conduct a private or second autopsy, a review of pertinent resources, or both. If an autopsy is necessary, Dr. Chundru will schedule the procedure with the client and coordinate with the funeral home selected by the family of the loved one. Please note that his autopsy services are only available in Texas, Utah, and Nevada.

In most cases where Dr. Chundru serves as a medical malpractice expert witness, he will review a variety of relevant resources that include:

  • Medical records.
  • Documentation from the healthcare provider.
  • Autopsy reports, if another professional has performed the examination.

Based on Dr. Chundru’s investigation of these resources, he can support clients in several ways. Some attorneys prefer to talk through his findings so that they can prepare a strategy for their case. Others rely on Dr. Chundru to develop a formal report. His ability to deliver analysis in a timely manner — often within two weeks of a records review — distinguishes his work from a standard Medical Examiner’s report, which may take up to two months to receive.

Depending on the client’s needs, Dr. Chundru can travel to participate in a deposition or provide testimony locally in Central Texas. He can also arrange to give testimony before a jury and to respond to questions from either the plaintiff or defendant. The initial consultation can help clients plan the most effective use of Dr. Chundru’s time and knowledge in their case.
