9780956934116: Writing Medico-Legal Reports in Civil Claims - an Essential Guide

Written for medical experts by Giles Eyre and Lynden Alexander and published in association with the Expert Witness Institute, this highly-praised guide to medico-legal report writing in civil claims bridges the 'communication void' that too often exists between medical experts and the lawyers who instruct them. The guide explains the legal principles and rules of court that must be applied in writing reports, gives guidance on the report's content and format, provides practical forensic writing skills, and explores the practical and contractual issues that arise in medico-legal practice.The Second Edition has been updated to include the latest case law, the most recent developments in medico-legal work (including the impact of the 'Jackson Reforms' and Medco), and has been expanded to include the issues that arise in Quantum and Care Reporting.

Review:

'An essential and invaluable resource for all involved in medico-legal work as expert witnesses ... an invaluable aid to legal understanding and to the enhancement of the expert's practical skills' James Badenoch QC (Chairman Emeritus Expert Witness Institute). 'A must-have-manual for the new expert - a go-to-guide for the mature expert' Dr Jan Wise (Chair of the BMS Medico-Legal Committee 2004-2015) 'The conscientious solicitor and the conscientious expert who engage in civil medical cases would be foolish not to have this impressive book to hand, and to benefit from its scholarship and practicality.' Alec Samuels (Solicitors' Journal) 'You can use this guide either as an introduction to medico-legal and quantum reporting in civil claims, or as a ready and erudite reference to the more technical issues that inevitably arise. In this challenging and often complex area where subtle differences in wording can conceivably alter the outcome of a case, this book can be depended upon to help the expert witness avoid the ambiguities and pitfalls that can occur in the presentation of written evidence. As has already been stressed, no expert witness should be without it.' Elizabeth Taylor
