I regularly produce reports on instruction from solicitors relating to medicolegal claims. I provide a rapid turnaround (usually <3 weeks) with brief concise reports.
I have been doing medicolegal reports for about 20 years, approximately 50 per year with around 60/40% defendant/claimant split.
A total of 10 cases have resulted in appearance in Court.
My scale of fees is as follows:
Preparation of report: £200/hour, usually 2-4 hours
Examination of Client: £200, in addition to above
Attendance at Conference with Counsel: £200/hour
Travelling time: £100/hour (plus First Class rail fare)
Telephone conference between experts: £200/hour (usually 1 hour with 1 hour preparation)
Trials: £1200 per day in half day units (plus travelling time)
Short form reports can be arranged at a fixed cost of £500.
