Expert witnesses and the SoR’s Professional Indemnity Insurance - reminder

Published: 26 April 2018 Ezine

The SoR is aware of companies acting as intermediaries that are commissioned by solicitors to identify a suitably experienced expert witness for medico-legal cases.

Members may have been contacted by such companies or have applied to have their names placed on a register of expert witnesses run by these companies.

Since October 2017, for the Society’s professional indemnity insurance to be effective, members must be on the expert witness register held by the SoR and only accept work referred to them via the Society.

if you have any questions or wish to apply to have your name entered on the Society’s expert witness register please contact Nigel Thomson, professional officer for ultrasound, at [email protected], or visit the expert witness webpage.
