Liability & Causation Reports

Our experts prepare liability reports outlining the standard of care provided to a Claimant for the purposes of a clinical negligence case. Liability reports can be either Court compliant or used for screening and advisory purposes only. In addressing matters surrounding breach of duty, consent and causation, the liability experts will apply the appropriate legal tests within their report and use the relevant professional and NICE guidelines and evidence-based research to support their expert opinion.

Our associate expert witnesses are handpicked by our clinical leaders for their specialist areas of expertise including nursing, pelvic health physiotherapy, respiratory physiotherapy, and dentistry as well as occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. The breadth of specialist experience within our network of associates means we are regularly relied upon to support landmark cases across the UK including Thalidomide survivors and those impacted by mesh implants.
