McGregor Berger & Associates

McGregor Berger & Associates – Medical Legal Experts

McGregor Berger & Associates’ pedigree is steeped in medical legal matters, performing independent occupational and vocational assessments, and providing expert witness for the courts. Operating in Western Canada since 2001; we opened offices in Burlington Ontario in 2018, followed by Ottawa in January 2019 and Toronto in February 2020.

Unlike IME companies who retain a roster of independent medical consultants, McGregor Berger & Associates hire and retain experts as full-time employees. Our team of experts include professionals from regulated health profession domains and rehabilitation science-related fields, and who are all Certified Life Care Planners. Each matter is assigned to one expert who then deals directly with counsel through to delivery of each report. Our corporate culture is an “open door” environment, continuing education is mandatory and peer collaboration and review fosters synergies in all that we do.

Because of our many years of experience, acting for both plaintiff and defense counsel in Western Canada, our perspective is broad and differs from most. Our research is thorough; we stay within our scope of practice and maintain objectivity in all matters. As such, our reports and Certified Life Care Plans are highly persuasive and defensible.

Because each province has dissimilar funding mechanisms and legal proceedings, whether by bench trial or jury trials, experts from outside of the jurisdiction are often challenged by the courts, or they are eviscerated with regularity on the stand. As McGregor Berger & Associates expand our national footprint; having experts that are familiar with both jurisdiction and trial experience, jurisdiction plays to our strength.

Product/Service Education

  • Certified Life Care Plans

    A thorough multi-faceted assessment that identifies medical & non-medical needs based on the individual and is projected over the client's life expectancy.Our research is thorough; we stay within our scope of practice and maintain objectivity in all matters. Our reports and Certified Life Care Plans are persuasive and defensible.

  • Cost of Future Care Projections

    A Cost of Future Care Projection (CFCP) is a scaled back Life Care Plan. The CFCP comprises a detailed written report and includes tables with services, rationale, and costs. The CFCP is an excellent workup for mediation. Treatment providers and medical teams are not consulted in this phase. Should a Life Care Plan be required the CFCP becomes the foundation for the Life Care Plan.

  • Independent Vocational Evaluations

    Assesses the impact of injuries sustained, a review of all medical files is undertaken and the injured party is consulted in person, by phone or video conference. Evaluates the client's education, training, experience, interests, aptitudes & other relevant factors associated with future employability and earnings. Extensive education and training are critical in both conducting the evaluation and interpreting the results accurately. Furthermore, it is essential to articulate the findings with clarity and supported with relevant research.
