Medico-legal services

We provide solicitors with immediate access to expert medico-legal services.

Our clinicians have received dedicated medico-legal training and are used to working in a medico-legal setting as both as single joint experts and separate party appointed experts. We provide objective legal reports which adhere to CPR part 35 and PD 35 in light of the guidance for the instruction of experts in civil claims.

Our services include:

  • Quantum reports
  • Soft tissue injury claim report (fixed cost medical reports)
  • Evidence for medical negligence cases
  • Evidence for professional conduct cases
  • Evidence for criminal cases

* Where reasonably required, we also carry out an in-court expert witness service in line with the requirements stated in PD35.

Our legal reports and expert witness service can be carried out by any or a combination of the professionals in our multidisciplinary team in the disciplines of:

  • Orthotics
  • Prosthetics
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychology
  • Podiatry
