We are continually looking for highly experienced healthcare professionals who either have previous expert witness experience or are wanting to develop their skills into becoming an expert witness.

If you are a nurse, midwife, occupational therapist or physiotherapist and you have been working clinically for more than 10 years, and you are highly experienced and knowledgeable in your area of expertise, please do get in touch.

We are particularly interested if you have direct experience in care needs assessments and understand the challenges facing care and case managers setting up packages in the community.

The role of a Care Expert Witness

Your specialist knowledge and professional attributes could be just what is required to assist the Court in providing robust and evidence-based reports in the area of quantum reporting.

It will involve visiting and assessing the Claimant, and your report will include your assessment findings, your recommendations for care and the costs of the care you recommend. This may also include any aids and equipment required.  

Your report will be used to assist solicitors in relation to each case and thereafter dealing with any subsequent work relating to the case, for example responding to questions, reviewing evidence, attending conferences, preparing for joint discussions and completing joint statements, and you may be required to attend Court.

The role of a Liability Expert Witness

Experts reporting on Breach of Duty will not be required to visit the Claimant. Your role will be to review and investigate the nursing records and documentation provided and you will produce a report in relation to your views and opinions on the care provided. 

As an expert witness, you are bound by Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 (CPR35) and Practice Direction 35 (PD35) and you should ensure you are familiar with these.

If you would like to find out more about the roles or you believe you have what it takes to become an expert witness, please send us your CV and covering letter to recruitment@jjaltd.co.uk
