Medico Legal

Louis Clearkin has been acting as an Expert Witness in Ophthalmology since 1988 and has a reputation for prompt, high quality, stand-alone medical reports. He accepts instructions for claimant, defendant and  jointly, in personal injury and medical negligence. He is listed in The UK Law Society's Directory of Expert Witnesses and a member of The Academy of Experts.

His service includes:

  • the full range of diagnostic services (refraction, visual fields, photography including GDX and OCT, ocular electrophysiology, orthoptic and biometric);
  • an enhanced service in the documentation of visual disability following injury. Faced with a potentially exaggerated claim for loss, electrophysiological examination using wide-field multifocal electroretinogram coupled with orthoptic and optometic examinations to a strict protocol is now available and reduces doubt considerably;
  • completed reports within four weeks of accepting instructions (assuming all relevant documents are available);
  • a very much quicker turnround is possible for urgent cases following direct notification by telephone on 0844 561 6030;
  • ability to participate in conferences by videoconferencing using the Tandberg vision 5000 system - including a document visualisation facility.

A copy of Louis Clearkin’s CV, specimen reports and his terms of business are available on request. He is willing to act as an expert advisor and provide pro bono opinions, as well as fixed-price screening reports.

(Mr Clearkin is happy to modify his terms of business, by agreement, only prior to formally accepting instructions).
