Over 30 years Personal Injury and Medical Negligence experience. Approximately 200 – 250 reports per year, roughly equal numbers of Defence & Claimant reports. About 7000 reports provided over the years. In the last few years much more medical negligence work and from 2019 only medicolegal work . Turnaround about 8 weeks from seeing the claimant.

Fees £600 for most standard length PI reports. Medical Negligence work is charged at the hourly rate of £300. Most negligence reports are  in the range £900-£1500. Payments are to “Wade Medical” preferably within 3 months but I will accept end of case payments as long as the timescale is reasonable, say 1 year.


From this year (2019) I have stopped doing clinical work. Before this year I was working part time, 4 days a week.  I had been on the Consultant staff in Coventry for 29 years. The Orthopaedic Unit in Coventry is a teaching and  level 1 trauma unit serving a wide area and covering about 1,000,000 population. The elective orthopaedic service covers all subspecialties. The academic Unit provides the training for Warwick Medical Students and the orthopaedic registrar training programme.
