Experts' Meetings - helpful process or waste of time and money?
As a care and occupational therapy expert I have had many experts’ meetings, pursuant to CPR 35.12, over the past 15 years. We have nearly 200 associates from health profession backgrounds, and experts’ meetings are not an infrequent activity.
Our experience is that most have worked really well and the outcome has been an agreed joint statement, produced in a reasonable period of time, documenting clear information that is helpful to both parties, in terms of resolving the claim, and to the court in terms of understanding the issues between the experts.
