What is a Daniels v Walker Application?


Generally speaking, it is desirable to have a single joint expert report to the Court where specialist advice is required. However, there are circumstances where one or both parties may wish to consult an expert of their choosing to decide whether they should challenge the report of the single joint expert. This is now known as a Daniels v Walker application after the case in which a ruling of this kind was first made [2000]. This is applicable to all matters that reach court and where expert evidence is required. Experts appointed this way are still required to be impartial.
