AN ESTABLISHED BACKGROUND
AN EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE
A SOLID EXPERTISE
Mark Middleman has been undertaking medicolegal work since 1988. Since 1991, it has been his predominant area of practice.
He has therefore seen all the changes which have taken place in the industry over the years both from a medical viewpoint (eg the “whiplash” controversy) and also the legal viewpoint (CPR & MOJ duties). He has lived with, and adapted to, these successive changes over many years, giving him an established background in the industry. Relatively few medical practitioners in this field can lay claim to such extensive experience.
Dr Middleman has a particular interest in the area of Whiplash-associated Disorder; and has a large personal library, constantly developing, on the independent medical literature of this topic. Dr Middleman’s background and training is in the field of General Practice and he was awarded Membership of the Royal College in 1985. He remains an active College member, fully participating in the cyclical Revalidation programme laid down by the General Medical Council, to promote excellence in practice. This includes the annual peer-appraisal process. All of this ensures that he keeps up-to-date in all issues relevant to general practice, as well as the areas of his particular interest, in which regular continuing professional development is also undertaken.
During 2016 Dr Middleman was awarded the Cardiff University Law School Bond Solon Civil Expert Witness Certificate. This is the first university certified training for expert witnesses and is a qualification currently held by relatively few medical practitioners working in the medicolegal industry.
Instructing solicitors / agencies can therefore be confident that when instructing Dr Middleman in their personal injury cases, they are instructing an expert witness who has a solid and developing expertise, both medically and in relation to legal requirements.
