Changes to the statements given by experts come into force on 1st October 2020.

Today the 122nd update Practice Direction Amendments will come into force.

The change relating to the declaration that an expert witness has to give is outlined below.

PRACTICE DIRECTION 35 – EXPERTS AND ASSESSORS 1) In paragraph 3.3, at the end of the statement of truth insert “I understand that proceedings for contempt of court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.”


We act as expert witnesses to provide accommodation reports for litigation purposes. Our reports address the current and future accommodation needs of those who have been injured as a result of an accident or medical negligence. You'll be pleased to note that we continue to provide a professional and quality service and adhere to the rules, and as of today (1st October 2020), all of our reports have been updated to suit this change.
