Our expert panel
As a solicitor-led medical reporting organisation, we understand the difference the right medico-legal expert witness can make to a case.
Their expert evidence is the key to proving the extent of the injury and financial loss in a personal injury claim, or condition and prognosis report for a medical negligence case, as well as the liability issues of breach and causation in medical negligence cases.
Experienced personal injury and clinical negligence lawyers appreciate the value of appointing a quality medico-legal expert witness to assist them in their case preparation. They know that experienced medico-legal expert witnesses need more than just proven status in their clinical practice; they need a deep understanding, from practical experience, of what this means in the legal claims environment.
Our medico-legal expert witnesses undergo the highest levels of scrutiny to ensure they meet the standards required to join and maintain their membership of our panel. They understand the unique role they have in any legal action, as the only witnesses entitled to give opinion evidence.
Our experts comply with the Civil Procedure Rules, their regulatory obligations, and all other professional advice. We encourage and facilitate continuing professional development so that our experts are up to speed with the latest insights in the medico-legal reporting field, and to ensure they have a deeper understanding of legal issues such as the burden of proof, causation or the ‘but for’ test.
This is why it is vital that the most appropriate medico-legal expert witness is chosen for each case.
