Even the smallest detail can make or break a medical malpractice case and experienced expert witnesses are crucial for plaintiffs and defendants. Dr. Ben¬nett Greenspan uses his decades of radiology and nuclear medicine experience to help attorneys prosecute or defend complex malpractice cases. Dr. Greenspan inspects and evaluates the quality of exams to determine if medical issues were overlooked or misdiagnosed. He's a Board Certified Radiologist and nuclear medicine physician who has provided expert testimony by deposition 15 times since 2006. Dr. Greenspan has also testified at trial four times. With more than 27 years experience as a practicing M.D., Dr. Greenspan is well-suited to spot cancers and other medical issues that may not have been properly diagnosed in the first place. So far, he has primarily worked on behalf of plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases, but also offers his services to defense attorneys. Dr. Green-span says what really drew him toward becoming an ex-pert witness was the opportunity to help attorneys and patients find justice and closure. "I find the cases very interesting," Dr. Greenspan said. "It is somewhat like detective work and is certainly a challenge. There's a full range of mistakes or misdiagnosis that range from being egregious and horrendous to borderline." When cases are complex and determining whether the standard of care was met rests on a razor's edge, Dr. Green-span is a go-to witness for lawyers in the St. Louis area. His effectiveness comes not only from experience, but a keen eye for detail and an impartial approach. "I will give attorneys an honest answer," Dr. Greenspan said. "If there's no case I will tell them that. Most malpractice lawyers don't want to pursue a case that doesn't have merit. It's not worth the time, effort or expense." This approach has helped Dr. Greenspan earn a solid reputation as a trusted expert witness. His caseload continues to grow as more attorneys seek guidance in complex malpractice cases involving radiology or nuclear medicine. "One of the cases I was particularly pleased to be a part of involved a radiologist in the Midwest accused of missing lung cancer and other things," Dr. Green¬span said. "I reviewed the case and frankly, the radiologist did not miss the cancer. The case went to trial and I gave testimony in court and the radiologist won the case." He's a former Assistant Professor in Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine and recipient of the American College of Radiology's Distinguished Committee Service Award. Dr. Greenspan also received the Distinguished Service Award from the American Board of Radiology, and from the Academic Council of the Society of Nuclear Medicine.
