With a track record of over 25 years providing timely, clear, independent medical reports to the legal profession, we fully understand the requirements of instructing solicitors, in particular the restricted timescales for civil litigation, the limitations of expertise, and the absolute need for independent, balanced consideration. We bring to bear

  • Over 35 years clinical experience in ENT
  • Accepting medicolegal instructions since 1990
  • Strong academic background in Evidence Based Medicine
  • Scientific, analytical and logical approach
  • Sound grasp of legal principles / CPR
  • Key points of case grasped, summarised & presented effectively

Mr Fairley currently produces around 25 Expert Witness medico-legal reports per year, some commissioned by claimant, some defendant, and increasingly as a single joint expert. In the personal injury field, common areas for reports are
