Insurers

Dr Harrison can produce expert, accurate and forensic reports and assessments including IME and other related appropriately formatted reports as required, particularly to assist in an authoritative way with causation as an important element in the liability consequential on such injury as well as work capacity as an important expression of the worker’s ability to cope on modified duties or resume normal work. 

 

For Insurers, his standing with Orthopaedic peers, certainly gives him an ability no less than that of other current practising peers, to provide opinions about the necessity and appropriateness of treatment being sought by peer colleagues.

  • Full medico-legal report to you within 10-14 working days

Dr John Harrison is:

  • He has particular expertise in providing appropriate reports on the liability side of treatment demands by peer orthopaedic and allied procedural surgeons
