The Importance of Selecting the right Medical Expert
Posted on 14th May 2019 at 10:26
In personal injury claims, there are three main aspects that your accident claim solicitors are concerned with. These include: liability, causation and quantum. The role of the medical expert helps assist MG Legal’s injury solicitors in ticking the boxes in terms of quantum and causation.
Causation: Have the injuries sustained arisen as a direct result of the incident in question, or would they have occurred in any event, and have simply been accelerated by the incident?
Quantum (Valuing): How serious are the injuries and is any future care necessary? to provide information on how the claim should be quantified.
Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules deals with experts and the evidence they provide in support of a claim. Medical experts have an overriding duty to the Court to help matters progress, with the assistance of their expertise. This is usually by providing evidence in a written report format, unless the Court directs otherwise.
