Personal Injury Reports

  1. Fixed Fee Reports - Medco.

    Professor Nee is registered as an A&E Consultant (Direct Medical Expert) with Medco and is able to provide first and second reports in line with the MOJ's protocol for low value personal injury/soft tissue injury claims in road traffic accidents.

  2. Personal injury Reports.

    Professor Nee is instructed to prepare around 500 medicolegal reports a year in all areas of personal injury including road traffic accidents, employers liability and public liability.

  3. Low Velocity Reports.

    In his clinical practice in the NHS Professor Nee sees and treat hundreds of patients with whiplash injuries of all grades of severity each year. His department also runs a daily review clinic in which eligible patients are monitored to recovery, enabling an assessment of disease trajectory in soft tissue injuries.

    In medico-legal practice, approximately one third of his instructions are concerned with low velocity impact (LVI) cases. The majority originate from claimants' representatives although he has also been instructed by defendants representatives and as agreed joint expert.

    Professor Nee has conducted a comprehensive literature search on the issue of whiplash injury and the low speed defence. His literature review is appended to every report to the Court in which LVI is raised as an issue, and he has published on the topic Professor Nee is aware of the arguments on both sides in respect of the low speed defence and is well used to assisting the Court with the interpretation of the range of professional opinion.

    Prof Nee believes that he is the most widely instructed medical expert in the field and assists other experts in the provision of reports. He has assisted the Court on numerous occasions where the defendant has sought to refute causation based upon engineering considerations, such as the extent of vehicle damage. His evidence in the Birmingham County Court was found to be "balanced and careful" in the judgment of Mr. Recorder Denniss.

All reports comply with the requirements set out in the relevant Practice Direction (CPR Part 35 suppl). Waiting times for examinations are generally four weeks, flexible for urgent cases. Each 30 minute appointment includes review of medical records when provided at the time of examination. Reports are usually provided within 7 days of the examination. Written questions are answered promptly and copied to instructing solicitors.
