He is the only British radiologist awarded, the prestigious ESSR/ISS Award (European Society of Skeletal Radiology/International Skeletal Society) for Best Scientific research, Oxford, 2005.
Recently awarded prestigious Bronze award by the National Clinical Excellence Committee in 2016, in recognition of his immense contribution to excellence in radiology.
He regularly receives about 100-150 instructions from both claimants and defendants with 90% claimants and 10% defendants.
Shah Khan has completed the Expert Witness Certificate (2008), Bond Solon course in conjunction with Cardiff University, on medicolegal practice including report writing and cross-examination for court appearance. He did a refresher on Report writing course by Bond Solon (2018).
He provides thorough and considered medical reports, which are clear and clarify the issues raised, providing unambiguous opinion and require minimal, if any, amendments or queries. Shah does less cases than peers as each case he takes is a commitment to do his best for the case. He takes his time in going through the cases and formulating his report, sifting through the scans and providing incisive expert opinion, backed by literature review and references.
He is particularly skilled in complex cases, where his fastidious attention to detail and profound opinion has made the decisive difference in a number of cases, when everything else were stacked against the case.
Although he has had training in cross-examination for court appearance but has yet to attend court. This is a testament of the clarity and considered opinion provided, that facilitates early settlement of cases and avoiding costly court proceedings.
We are able to offer report within 2-3 weeks, or earlier if urgent, on receiving instructions. Fees for the report are based on reasonable hourly rate and compliant with legal aid guidelines. Flexibility on payments are negotiable.
Full details of his terms and conditions for the expert report for personal injury and medical negligence, including court attendances are available on request.
