What is Medico Legal?
At Reshape & Restore we offer a Medico-Legal service.
This involves constructing a report for a patient who has been affected by personal injury, disease and/or medical negligence, which can then be used in a variety of circumstances as a witness in a legal case. As doctors and medical professionals our requirement as a Medico-Legal representative is to take on the role of an expert medical witness, whose report supports a patient’s claim for damages. An outside agency will usually select us as an appropriate medical expert, who can best aid the litigation process, according to our area of specialism, experience and location.
What is in the report?
All medical reports must comply with current legislation and meet the requirements set out in Civil Procedure Rules.
The report itself will contain details of the sustained injury and provide evidence to suggest it was caused by the claimed incident. Information will also need to be included regarding the extent and duration of the injuries and symptoms, as well as a prognosis for recovery, if at all.
