Expert witness:

I have been an expert witness for court since 1996, during which time I have prepared over 1000 medico-legal reports. I work predominantly in the personal injury domain, having assessed road traffic and industrial accident cases. I also assess the psychological impact of alleged clinical negligence, occupational stress, and the effects of interpersonal crime on victims.

I have experience of giving evidence in court, and attend medico-legal training events. I am married to a Deputy District Judge, who updates me with regard to any changes in the Civil Procedure Rules. I am included in the UK Register of Expert Witnesses, an APIL approved expert, and a Sweet and Maxwell checked expert.

I am instructed by claimant and defendant solicitors, and also jointly instructed.

Specialist area

I now have considerable experience in the assessment and treatment of road traffic accident cases, from the relatively minor to serious incidents involving fatalities and disablement. I have expertise in the efficient treatment of travel anxiety and post traumatic stress. I am writing a self help text for road traffic accident victims.
