In some situations, particularly cases involving medical negligence, the issues in the case may not be clear cut. Rather than incurring the considerable expense of a full negligence report it may be prudent to request a “screening report” in advance. Relevant medical records can be reviewed and issues in relation to liability and causation can be considered. I can then advise whether the standard of care potentially fell below a reasonable body of medical opinion.
A screening report will normally be charged at £500.
