The 1st April saw a number of changes to the rules and legislation governing personal injury cases. This included an update to the Civil Procedure Rules in respect of 'costs management' for multi-track cases issued on or after 1st April 2013. The new rules require solicitors to file a costs budget to the Court at the early stages of proceedings.
Premex understands you need to provide the Court with accurate medical expert costs and has set up a dedicated inbox to handle all costs budget related enquiries. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- Name of expert instructed
- Expert speciality
- Volume of records (if known)
- Injury details
Premex will request the medical expert provides a fee on all aspects of producing a medical report from initial appointment through to court attendance unless otherwise requested.
We would appreciate if you could keep us informed of any deadlines that are required on both producing the cost budget information and also in obtaining the required medical evidence.
