Why Is Screening Important?
We understand that clinical negligence cases are costly, time consuming and drain resources. Taking on too many cases can be risky and taking on wrong cases can be catastrophic! Having a screening system is essential, and the earlier you get specialist experts involved in your case assessment process, the faster you can weed out cases unlikely to succeed. Early removal of negative cases helps to reduce disbursement costs, WIP costs and most importantly frees up time to allow you to focus on winnable cases. Use Inneg Specialist Screening and watch your success rates soar!

Struggling to Decide How Best to Proceed Your Claim?
Case Assessment Reports
In the unlikely event you require medical advice on how to progress a claim, Inneg provide a service where our Clinical Director, Dr Lister will assess your case and provide guidance in the form of a Case Assessment Report. Case Assessment Reports can also be used as a time saving tool for time poor solicitors, by reducing the time that a solicitor needs to spend assessing the merits of the claim, a succinct CAR report directs you to the pertinent records and information and allows the solicitor to make an informed decision on how best to progress the claim in a shorter amount of time.
As part of a report, Dr Lister and his team will undertake an assessment of your claim and corresponding medical records and provide by return a detailed report laying out the basis of any claim and advising you; a) which expert/s to approach, b) what order to approach each expert, c) questions to ask each expert and he can often include the probability of success of claim.
Dr Lister often approaches other experts to get their opinions which are then included within his report. Example reports available on request.
Extremely useful for those complex cases where you require expert input on how to proceed, to avoid a wasted report from the wrong expert.
