REPORTS

Paul Romeril prepares his Reports in accordance with the Association of Consulting Forensic Engineers “Guidelines for Court Reports of January 2000”. The Report gives a narrative of the accident, deals with engineering matters and gives conclusions.

The Report will normally include photographs of the locus. The Report may include a qualified opinion on breaches of statutory duty etc as well as extracts from Technical Publications, and sketches/maps. The Report will not express an Opinion on liability or other matters of Law.

The status of the Report under the Exchange of Reports Regulations will be stated in accordance with the Association Guidelines.

On request Paul Romeril will advise on liability and related issues outside his area of Engineering Expertise. Such advice will be charged as per Scale of Fees and will be issued in a separate letter from the Report.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

The ongoing trend in Civil Litigation away from Oral hearings towards a Report based process places far more emphasis on the Expert Engineer’s Report which has to be more comprehensive and broader than before. As a consequence the cost of preparing such reports has increased substantially. However there are significant overall savings to clients in that Paul Romeril spends far less time dealing with queries arising from his reports, attending consultations and in court.
Paul Romeril charges all clients on Scale of Fees published on this website. The Scale of Fees is necessarily complex to cover the possible cost headings and is based on the hourly rate.

For a straightforward matter in Dublin which involves a half day attendance the costs will be in the order of the following:

  HIGH COURT CIRCUIT COURT
Report (to include photographs) €1700.00 €1350.00
Half Day Court Attendance(including preparation, photographs etc) €1100.00 € 950.00
TOTAL €2,800 €2,300

These rates do not include items such as Review of Discovery, Expert reports etc which can add significantly to fees. Fees are charged at the rate prevailing when the client is in a position to settle the account.
All fees quoted are net of VAT currently at 21.5%
