After the consultation, the surgeon will provide a comprehensive report

How it works

When a legal case proceedings requires a specialist assessment, the orthopaedic surgeon will generally interview and examine the patient, review any supporting documentation, clinical notes and imaging. Following the consultation, he will provide a comprehensive report in a timely manner allowing for efficient handling of the case.


A medico-legal examination.
The examination is intended to be an impartial and independent, honest assessment of your injury.

Who arranges your appointment

The examination can be arranged by one of the three parties to a legal case. They are:

  • your solicitor
  • the insurance company or its solicitor
  • an independent body such as the Workers Compensation Commission or the Motor Accidents Authority.

Before attending a doctor you should make sure you know who has arranged the examination and if you are unsure you should ask your solicitor.

Once the examination is complete a report will be sent from the doctor who examined you to the person who has arranged the examination. That person will also usually pay for the cost of the doctor’s report. The report is confidential. The person who receives the report does not need to provide a copy of the report to anyone else or even you.

The doctor cannot advise you about your medical problems, nor can he give you any treatment.

Medical advice

You are not seeing the doctor as his patient. The doctor is not able to advise you about your medical problems. Also, the doctor cannot give you any treatment. Any advice about your condition or treatment should be obtained from your own medical practitioners and not from a medico-legal doctor.

Please ensure you have the correct appointment date, time and address. Failure to attend an appointment may result in a cancellation fee.
