What does a Medico-Legal report consist of?
Medico-Legal reports are written by medical professionals who have been chosen as an expert witness in a legal case. After instruction by one of our customers, Speed Medical selects the most suitable medical expert witness from our eminent, hand-picked Expert Panel based on the required discipline, experience and location.
Why might my case require a Medico-Legal report?
In cases of personal injury, clinical negligence and industrial disease, a Medico-Legal report is required to prove your client’s case. In regards to injuries, evidence must be provided from a suitable, qualified and experienced expert witness.
The opinion provided by the expert must support your client’s claim by showing evidence of the sustained injury, show that it was caused by the incident complained of and confirm the extent and duration of the symptoms caused. In cases where the injured party has not yet fully recovered, the expert may also recommend further medical investigations or treatment.
