I have been writing medico-legal reports for both personal injury and clinical negligence cases since 1992. During that time I have produced over 5000 reports for cases of alleged personal injury and over 1500 reports for alleged clinical negligence. My ratio for Claimant:Defendant for clinical negligence is 3:2.
