MedCo is the new system for sourcing medical reports in soft tissue injury claims brought under the Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents.
How the system works
Users will be able to search for medical reporting organisations (MRO) who can provide the initial medico-legal report for RTA soft tissue injury claims as defined by 1.1(16A) of the Pre-Action Protocol:
The system will return a choice of randomly generated results and the user will be able to select from those results which MRO to instruct.
Amendments have now been agreed to the Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents (the RTA Protocol) and to the Civil Procedure Rules.
The amendments bring into force two important procedural changes:
In respect of any Claim Notification Form sent on or after 6 April 2015 the first report in a soft tissue injury claim must be a fixed cost medical report commissioned from a medical expert or MRO sourced via MedCo;
With effect from 1 January 2016 medical experts must be accredited by MRS in order to provide the initial fixed cost medical report in a soft tissue injury claim.
