MEDICO-LEGAL INSTRUCTIONS REPORTS
Mr Dudderige is experienced in providing specialist expert reports & advice for medico-legal cases. He receives instructions from Solicitors for both claimant and defendant, together with joint instructions and group actions. Currently the majority of reports are for the claimant. There are different reports available:
Condition & Prognosis Reports We can usually see the patient in an outpatient consultation and prepare a Condition and Prognosis report within seven days. Mr Dudderige can see the patient in his rooms in London, Sussex or Kent.
Preliminary Case Assessments (PCAs) PCAs include a detailed chronology, case summary and expert opinion. They are designed to allow solicitors not only to assess the merits of a medical negligence claim but also to obtain after-the-event insurance. They are unsuitable for disclosure to the other party. However, once a positive PCA has been prepared and subsequently a full report requested, the cost of the PCA will be deducted from the final fee.
Causation and Liability Reports A detailed Liability and Causation report for medical negligence cases is prepared to fully comply with Part 35 CPR and is suitable for disclosure. Each report contains:
- a summary of the case
