We understand that medico-legal work plays a significant role in the judicial process, and that the quality of reports, as well as the speed of delivery, is paramount to success.
As such, we abide by the following three service commitments:
1. We will confirm a consultation date to claimants within 5 working days, following receipt of instruction.
2. Reports will be submitted within the agreed timeframes following examination of the claimant, provided medical records are made available. This happens in over 90% of cases.
Our service covers the following areas:
If the case requires, your consultant will complete a thorough examination of the claimant and assess all relevant medical records. In addition, they may conduct further tests to ensure accuracy for both defendant and claimant solicitors.
Our consultant specialise in orthopaedic cases, so can provide medico-legal opinion on anything from whiplash to broken bones and other injuries.
In cases where there has been an alleged breach of clinical duty, we offer expert opinion to verify such claims. This involves extensive examination of medical records. Occasionally, if there are factors that require further evidence, we will interview or examine the claimant.
As well as assessing negligence related to the claimant’s current condition, we can report on recovery rates, predisposition to injury and any expected acceleration or exacerbation of medical conditions.
All medico-legal opinion is given independently, professionally and confidentially to the solicitors.
With our experience in the hospital arena, we provide expert opinion on quality of care and any alleged breach of duty on medical premises. This includes reporting on issues such as orthopaedic industrial injuries, as well as home and prison visits.
In our report, we ascertain if standards of care have been compromised, and consider if any long-term medical problems are likely to occur as a result of mistreatment.
