Customer: Hi. This is Shari. I have a client whose son got a bad bruise
on the buttocks. It was reported about 12 hours after leaving her care. I'm wondering if it would take that long to appear?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: She noticed a baseball sized bruise when she bathed him, just before he left her. Twelve hours later, he was photographed with dark bruising covering his entire buttocks.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $34) to post your type of question to Medical Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure. I also had a physician opine, based on looking at a photo, that the bruise was caused by non-accidental means, specifically, that it was "indicative of clenching of the buttocks in anticipation of further blows, which were then delivered, causing bruising." Could that opinion be rendered to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty by viewing a photo of a bruise?
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
