The seminar set out the position of a consultant and talked through very clearly what was needed of them in the varying stages of the process from assessment of the claimant to attendance at court as an expert witness.
The people attending the talk were asked to look at their Rehabilitation cost consultant report writing skills and look into opportunities to hone and run through them to develop a good written style making the long detailed reports not only factually correct but interesting to read as well. The main points flagged up by the talk were logical presentation, use of language, structuring of the report and professional approach.
