Medical negligence is often referred to as clinical negligence since it covers not only core medical professionals (doctors and nurses) but also dentists, physiotherapists, psychologists etc. Medical negligence is also known as clinical negligence and is used broadly to denote violations in patient care by medical professionals or hospitals. This can include errors, accidents and care that fails to meet recognised standards. When medical professionals fail to uphold their duty of care, people can become victims of medical and clinical negligence.
Foresight’s medical expert witnesses are recruited from a broad range of medical disciplines through a stringent vetting process, and we currently have over 500 UK medical experts registered on our network who are here to fulfil your needs. Our peer network allows for its case managers to contact experts and ask for referrals to other experts should the need arise. This ultimately draws on a much wider pool of talent which can assist across the full spectrum of clinical negligence matters.
Clients can benefit greatly by not only utilising the best experts but also by utilising the collective clinical knowledge our network offers. In most cases of medical negligence, the size of the award is often predicated by the expert medical opinion of the assessing practitioner. Using Foresight’s vast network will offer you the best chance of a successful outcome and provide you with experts who will facilitate this.
One of Foresight’s key strengths has been to provide medical expert witnesses who can report promptly whilst adhering to budget. With one simple brief to a case manager, clients can be confident that their medical expert witness needs are taken care of with minimum fuss and convolution. Foresight’s team of case managers and administrators provide exhaustive case support so that solicitors and other instructing bodies can focus their energy on the client – not chasing experts. Foresight is here to save our clients time and money whilst providing the best experts at the most competitive rates. We’ll provide you with the most qualified expert witnesses who will meet your specific needs and handle your case with impeccable professionalism.
As a national service, Foresight can access its peer introduced network to speed up the process of solicitors engaging leading expert witnesses. Our medical negligence expert witness service delivers reports that match our clients’ file dates – on time and to budget. We always endeavour to offer a number of expert CVs from which to choose the most appropriate expert witness.
Foresight has always worked at its optimum performance level by developing bespoke activity in collaboration with the client. Together we can determine the right expert witnesses for the unique nature of your case. It’s often the case that a request for a psychiatric response might be better dealt with by a clinical psychologist. Likewise, it often transpires that a general practice review might be better responded to by an emergency medicine consultant. Foresight’s team is highly skilled in spotting where the best expert can be used. This, coupled with sanity checking against our network, can tailor the best expert for the right case.
