MEDICAL LEGAL WORK
Including legal aid work, across the southwest and the UK
TRUSTWORTHY EXPERT WITNESS REPORTS – QUICKLY…
We can provide independent, expert witness services in a broad range of areas, including personal injury, medical negligence, industrial injury claims and mental capacity assessments.
Dr Vikki Hunkin is one of only two practitioners on the specialist register in neuropsychology in Cornwall to have achieved the QiCN qualification. This is rated as the “gold standard” in neuropsychology by the British Psychological Society, lending her evidence extra weight and the highest level of credibility.
We have experience dealing with solicitors, insurers and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and understand the importance of delivering immediately understandable, robust expert witness reports that are not bogged down in jargon. Dr Hunkin is listed on the Directory of Expert Witnesses and undertakes legal aid funded work.
Clients are seen quickly for medical legal appointments and the medical legal report is delivered as soon as possible following the consultation. We won’t be the bottleneck that slows your case down.
LEGAL AID WORK –
FAST, ACCURATE AND RELIABLE...
Changes to legal aid can make it increasingly difficult to find a highly regarded clinical neuropsychologist to undertake important court work, at the legal aid rate.
Dr Vikki Hunkin is a highly experienced clinical neuropsychologist, holding the profession’s highest level of post-doctoral qualification.
Most importantly, we understand the increasingly tight timescales required of legal aid funded work and can often see clients at short notice.
Comprehensive, reliable expert witness reports are then prepared quickly and accurately, ready for submission, ensuring that specific questions are answered in straight-forward English.
Dr Hunkin has also undertaken formal expert witness training for court appearances and has wide experience of meetings with counsel. She is HCPC registered and is one of the few practising psychologists in Cornwall to hold the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QicN), regarded by the British Psychological Society as the “gold standard.”
