lifeexpectancy.ca is the work of Dr. Tom Elliott, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of British Columbia and Medical Director of 832-563-4363. Dr. Elliott's expertise in life expectancy is grounded in his 20+ years as consultant to the Canadian life insurance industry: over the same period he has provided 500+ life expectancy opinions to plaintiff and defence counsel and testified as an expert witness in life expectancy and other medical-legal matters on more than 40 occasions. His opinions have addressed life expectancy in a broad range of medical conditions including diabetes, heart disease & stroke, hepatitis, lung disease, substance abuse (tobacco, alcohol & street drugs), cancer, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.
