There’s nothing more frustrating than instructing your medicolegal expert, waiting on your expert’s availability to examine the Claimant, then realising, after the expert’s review of the records that crucial records are missing from disclosure and without these records, the report cannot be finalised.
Not only does this result in significant delays in progressing the claim, but it also unnecessarily increases both lawyer and expert costs associated with re-instructing your medicolegal expert once the missing records are obtained.
Luckily for you, highlighting missing records is part and parcel of the experienced and professional service we complete for our clients.
Did you know that in the event a chronology isn’t required, DMR Collation offer a separate missing records review service which pulls together a summary timeline of events and identifies any obvious key missing records in the case? These reviews, completed by our in-house lawyer, typically take around 2 hours to complete in addition to our standard medical records collation time, and can either be billed on an hourly or fixed fee basis.
Our separate Missing Records Review Service provides a cost-effective alternative when you wish to ensure that all obvious records have been received, are included within the medical record bundle, and the case is ready for medical reporting.
Another added advantage, is that the cost of our missing record reviews are recoverable on an agency basis, allowing you to bill profit costs for our chargeable hours at potential Grade A-C rate, so there’s a significant uplift return on our standard fees of £55ph.
