This is the fifth edition of IRN Research’s Medico-Legal and Insurance Services report. As such, this report updates and expands on the information contained in the 2020 report.
Medico-Legal and Insurance Services (MLIS) are a range of medical and medical-related services offered to legal services companies, insurers and possibly to employers. For this reason, MLIS companies are often staffed and run by doctors, nurses and physiotherapists. The range of services offered can be split into two broad categories:
- Medical evidence (ME)
- Rehabilitation and allied medical services (RAMS)

The COVID-19 lockdowns caused a significant decline in personal injury case numbers and a significant slowdown in personal injury case progression, leading to a decline in the market. IRN estimate that the medico-legal and insurance services (MLIS) market, including payments to individual, freelance and self-employed medical experts and case managers declined by 18% in 2020 compared with 2019. The market is anticipated to fall again in 2021 by around 10%. The premium end of the market – i.e., high-value catastrophic injuries – declined but held up better than the rest of the market in 2020 and is expected to return to growth in 2021.
