How is a medico-legal assessment carried out?

Taking into account an individual’s functional ability – such as their mobility, speech and understanding – experts will gain an understanding of people’s cognitive ability, mental health, coping abilities and any adaptations that have been required for them to live comfortably.

Our experts will visit clients in their homes to carry out a detailed assessment of an individual’s presentation, symptoms, prognosis and where appropriate, mental capacity. Such assessments may be carried out remotely where required, and our experts are set up to carry out virtual clinical assessments and desktop reports where appropriate. Report writing follows the assessment. 

How is a medical expert report developed?

Medico legal reporting begins with an introduction to outline the purpose and scope of the report, as well as providing any background information. The consultant or specialist will review all evidence that has been presented, including medical records, previous assessments and reports from medical colleagues.

Following this they will carry out an assessment before providing their opinion on the individual through written evidence. All relevant matters, summary and conclusion will be included as part of report writing to validate the opinions drawn by the expert and explain why they believe it to be valid.
