Expert Witness Roles
at Bush & Co

What you can expect

Our associate expert witnesses work on some of the most complex cases in our sector and are well respected in the medico-legal industry for their objective opinion and experience.

Working with us, you can expect to work with some of the UK’s leading solicitors as well as likeminded people at Bush & Co who challenge the status quo, care about what they do, learn from each other and never take their eyes off the end goal; we think that’s pretty special.

As an associate expert witness you will work with solicitors representing clients who have suffered catastrophic injury to:

  • Identify liability through case reviews where clinical negligence or personal injury may have occurred.
  • Assess the quantum of an injury, taking into account the individual and their life pre-injury, the impact it has had on everyday life and their needs going forward.

Here’s what Claire Ashton has to say about being an expert witness with Bush & Co:
