Frequently Asked Questions

Our team will respond within 24 hours.  If you are enquiring from a jurisdiction within a different time zone, please let us know so that we can arrange a mutually convenient time to speak if the enquiry cannot be answered by email.

In some cases, we can assist where there were factors to consider such as toxicology or injuries sustained when the person was still living. We can provide an opinion on a person’s medical issues and the care they received prior to their death; or their capacity to drive in the case of a road traffic fatality; or on photographs of their injuries.  In the case of autopsy findings, we will offer you guidance on obtaining appropriate expertise.

When we receive your enquiry, we will contact you with general advice as to whether we can assess your case with a view to providing a written report. If we assess your case, it will be at no cost to you as we understand that there may be circumstances or considerations about the case where we will not be able to provide the service that you are looking for. After a review of preliminary materials supplied by you, we will determine whether we can provide a written report and will contact you to agree on next steps.

The cost will depend on the complexity of the work required.  After an initial free consultation, we will provide you with a quote for our service.
