Specialist Pain Management Expert Witness & Medicolegal Services

About Pain Expert:

Established in November 2012, Pain Expert is a private limited company that provides instructing lawyers with a reliable source of high quality expert evidence to assist the courts in the assessment of complex cases in which chronic pain and associated disability are important features.

Pain Expert also provides pain management specialists with a comprehensive range of office services and professional support to facilitate the provision of high quality expert evidence and the establishment and maintenance of a successful medicolegal practice.

Pain Expert offers the expert witness services of a growing number of consultants in pain medicine. Dr Jon Valentine (Norwich) established the company in November 2012. Dr Francis Luscombe (Plymouth) and Dr Mike Sidery (Norwich) joined in June 2013 and Dr Mohjir Baloch (Frimley Park) joined in January 2014.

The strength and depth of the specialist services offered was increased further when Dr Kevin Markham (Frimley Park) joined Pain Expert in April bringing along his skills as a well-established and highly respected expert witness.

Pain Expert has most recently welcomed Dr Derek Eastwood (Wirral) and Dr Richard Sawyer (Oxford) whose arrival in September 2014 has facilitated the capacity to provide high quality medicolegal assessments of claimants reporting chronic pain at consulting rooms in Oxfordshire and Merseyside.

Pain Expert is now able to offer appointments for medicolegal examinations by experienced pain management specialists at consulting rooms in Central London, Norwich, Plymouth, Truro, Bristol, Surrey, Wirral and Oxford. Pain Expert is also able to offer appointments for examination at number of other venues around the country by special arrangement for those claimants unable to make the journey to one of the primary venues.
