Medico-legal reporting

Orthopaedic Trauma Experts is a group of orthopaedic surgeons based in Edinburgh. We all specialise in trauma surgery and are all based at the New Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. Between us we care for over 10 000 outpatient and 4000 inpatient cases of personal injury each year and form one of the busiest orthopaedic trauma units in the whole of Europe.

We have come together as a group to offer the highest quality of medicolegal reporting possible in the fields of personal injury, trauma and musculoskeletal medical negligence. Each of us is an active specialist in the field of orthopaedic trauma who deals with trauma cases on a daily basis. Each of us is published internationally and we are all directors or faculty on various local, national and international teaching and training courses for orthopaedic trauma. Between us we have decades of experience in providing written and verbal medical opinions and reports. We therefore offer an unparalleled level of practical and academic expertise in the production of medical reports for our clients.

To support this expertise we have joined together with the renowned Edinburgh Clinic to provide a seamless system for reviewing clients, producing reports and providing further support. Between us we can ensure that all cases are seen promptly by the relevant expert and by providing a single full time point of contact for lawyers and solicitors we ensure that subsequent communication is faultless.

It is worth noting that we are not an agency. There is no middle man and all contracts are directly between the instructing team and the relevant expert. This maximises efficiency and minimises costs.
