Dr. David Baskin is a Houston neurosurgeon who is one of the "go to" doctors for insurance companies and large corporations. These companies hire Dr. Baskin, and pay him handsomely, to testify that individuals who are claiming injuries are not really injured. We have seen Dr. Baskin many times in injury lawsuits, and 100% of the time he is hired by the defense to challenge a person's claimed injury.
For an example of how hard Dr. Baskin will work to find no injury, please watch this video from a deposition my law partner, Brian Beckcom, took of Dr. Baskin in 2008.
Dr. Baskin testifies, essentially, that if someone is hit in the foot with a sledgehammer, he would look for "degeneration" in the foot to explain the pain, and is unable to conclude that it was actually the sledgehammer that caused it.
This is not surprising, as 100% of the reports we have seen Dr. Baskin write say that someone has "degeneration" (as opposed to a traumatic injury). Dr. Baskin even claimed in one case (in 2010) that our 25-year old client suffered from this age-related condition.
