Loss of Service

Dependency and Loss of Service Reports

At Bush & Co we have a team of highly experienced associate expert witnesses who prepare detailed Dependency and Loss of Service reports within complex and sensitive cases. We are renowned for providing robust and meticulous reports within this niche area for both clinical negligence and personal injury claims to both claimant and defendant solicitors.

Our associate expert witnesses understand the specific legal principles underpinning Loss of Service cases and at the point of instruction, clarification is sought to confirm with the instructing party the basis on which costings are to be provided, in line with Knauer v Ministry of Justice [2016].

In particular, our associate expert witnesses will recommend how services can reasonably be replaced and will give consideration to the longevity of child dependency which is rationalised throughout.

Assessment can be carried out during a face-to-face meeting or via an online meeting. Following assessment, the Heads of Loss detailed in the report includes, but is not exclusive to: past care, childcare (up to the end of full-time education), domestic services, household management, travel and car maintenance, DIY, gardening and pet care. Ancillary claims are evaluated on an individual basis.
