Our peer review service offers you a review of medical reports in cases where claimants have already been assessed. We review the report and provide you with an analysis suggesting specific questions to be posed to the expert, enabling you to respond and confront the medical evidence in an effective and authoritative manner.
From receipt of the medical report commissioned by the claimant’s representative, our highly experienced, medically qualified team carry out an in-depth review of the expert’s questions. We create a number of effective responses to be used in your replies to the expert and supply, electronically, the following:
- A straightforward, concise, high quality assessment of the case for your own use.
- A proposed letter for sending to the claimant’s solicitor (including a low ‘Part 36’ offer).
- A list of precise ‘power’ questions to include in your response to the doctor/expert.
