About the expert report
What does an expert report include?
The physician’s expert opinion will be sent to the requestor in a written report. The report must be short and easy to understand so that the persons concerned by the evaluation, the decision makers, the parties, the jurors and the judge can assess its content. The expert report includes a preamble, a presentation of facts and the medical expert’s conclusions and recommendations.
The preamble contains the basic data: the description of the mandate and the identification of the requestor, the questions raised in the mandate, the written and oral instructions received by the requestor, the presentation of professional credentials, the list of commented readings and documents consulted and used, the progress of the expertise, etc. It also contains data on the examinee, including identity, characteristics and the event that gave rise to the request for an evaluation.
In presenting the facts, the physician will state the essential elements of the case history, the physical examination, the interpretation thereof and the relevant investigation performed.
Taking into account the questions raised in the mandate, the expert physician will then draw conclusions and provide an opinion based on an objective assessment of facts, evidence and scientific data.
Finally, the expert will make any necessary recommendations, such as further investigation or a treatment that could prove beneficial for the examinee.
