The latest from Your Witness Issue 81: In this issue we report briefly on the Government’s reaction to the latest piece of shenanigans from the medical reporting organisations, and alert you to an imminent consultation on proposals from the Department of Health that would see fixed expert fees in many clinical negligence claims. We also publish the results of our latest expert witness survey. If you are keen to know how others view the expert witness scene, including summary statistics on charging rates, this is the article for you. And we amplify on our short piece in the last issue on weasel words from instructing lawyers. Is a judge bound to accept expert opinion that has not been challenged during the proceedings? This very question was addressed recently by Mr Justice Foskett who found himself in no bind whatsoever! We finish with a report of the Court of Appeal explaining to the Legal Aid Agency that it is not within the Agency’s power to override the will of the Court when it comes to paying for expert evidence.
