Why work as both a Case Manager and Expert Witness?

We believe there are a great number of transferable skills that are valuable to Expert work. The two roles overlap and intertwine throughout the lifecycle of a medico-legal case. Essentially the role of a Case Manager is the coordinator, facilitator and trouble-shooter for an individual’s long term care requirements. Case Managers, without realising, immediately possess a wealth of knowledge and skills to be a great Expert, including:

  • Researching care rates and working with care agencies.
  • Understanding the costs involved in the recruitment process of advertising, interviewing and employing carers.
  • Keeping abreast of changes in employment law.
  • Analysing how many carers will be needed in a team to cover the care hours and working this into a shift pattern.
  • Understanding the requirements to provide carers’ training, supervision and induction.
  • Sourcing other professionals to provide rehabilitation.
  • Planning a client’s holiday or leisure pursuits.
  • Regularly reading and implementing recommendations from other Expert reports.

As an Expert Witness you can utilise the skills of being a Case Manager in a more predictable, ‘hands off’ environment; the nature of the work is predominantly report-based so complements the ‘hands-on’ Case Management role. Actually many of our Experts would say that Case Management is the perfect complement to Expert work!
