With a foreword by James Badenoch Q.C. Chairman of the Expert Witness Institute and Sir Roger Vickers KCVO, FRCS Council Member, Medical Defence Union:
'This is an important and admirable book...thorough, lucid and extremely practical… it will be an invaluable source for all who are concerned with medico-legal work.'
The text offers easy to use techniques to help experts and lawyers alike to apply essential legal principles in practical reporting situations. It also serves as a valuable reference, giving guidance on to how to approach a wide-variety of reporting issues – from causation and damage through to multiple incident claims and exaggerating claimants.
