About Medico-Legal

What is Medico-Legal?

Medico-Legal services involve the provision of medical examinations, reports and expert opinions from trained, independent medical professionals.

Such reports are used for a variety of legal purposes: for instance, assessing the veracity of an individual’s claim for compensation and/or reimbursement from insurers or organisations including the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Worksafe.

What we do

Melbourne Pain Group are experts in the field of medico-legal. We specialise in musculoskeletal pain and psychiatric health.

While the provision of impartial assessments and reports to the TAC and Worksafe constitutes a large component of our work, we also serve:

  • Employers – including those who self-insure.
  • Solicitors – representing clients involved in a range of motor vehicle accidents, workplace injuries and 3rd-party claims.
  • Insurers – who deal with running the claims of injured workers.

Why choose us?

What sets Melbourne Pain Group apart from the majority of other medico-legal service providers is our level of legal expertise. Unlike many other medico-legal service providers, our core team comprises individuals with qualifications in law, backed by substantial practical experience.

Both insurers and bodies such as TAC and Worksafe have very specific guidelines for medical reporting which must be adhered to, otherwise such documents may be deemed inadmissible in legal proceedings. We know the legislation, we know the protocols – which is why we get it right the first time.

Our seasoned staff can precisely determine your needs and how to meet them in the most expeditious and cost-effective manner.

We have a fixed pricing structure, which enables you to know your costs in advance.
