What do we mean by the term ‘Medicolegal’?
Medicolegal refers to a legal case that requires medical expertise due to an injury or illness. It helps the justice system to find who is responsible for causing this injury or illness, and a medical professional is needed to examine this injury or illness to decide what the effects of this will be on the injured party.
Do VITA Orthopaedics offer medicolegal services?
YES. All three of our VITA Orthopaedics surgeons (Simon Coleridge, Huw David and David Stitson) have been successfully undertaking claimant, defendant and medical negligence work for many years on behalf of solicitors and their clients.
