Medico-legal & Court Experience : I prepare on average 600 reports per annum on injury and medical negligence cases; the distribution being approximately 2/3 plaintiff and 1/3 defence cases. I average 15 court appearances per annum, with my evidence being accepted over the past year in 13 out of 14 cases where I have been called to trial.
I have a database with settlement values, but this is not quoted, as the individual cases vary, although I would say that most cases are in five to six figure awards. My practice is beginning to show a bias more towards 50/50 defence to plaintiff work and I act as a Reviewer of quality of Reports for several large Insurance Companies.
I have lectured to APIL and the Association of Local Authorities and am involved in training in house for several legal practices. I have presented information to the Civil Justice Commission on proposals for reform of fixed costs in Civil Cases.
London & South East incorporates most of my practice, however I do undertake work nationwide including Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
