WeatherNet can assist in all matters of Forensic Meteorology. WeatherNet help lawyers, solicitors, the police force, barristers, insurance companies, the public and the civil engineering and construction community with a cost-effective and accurate analysis of historic weather data where the weather may have affected the outcome of the case.

This historic weather information is given in an easily understood Legal (CPR) Weather Report or as a Witness Statement. All Legal (CPR) Weather Reports and Certified Witness Statements benefit from showing past weather data that is utilised, an interpretation, conclusion and a statement of compliance and truth. This information complies with civil and criminal court requirements (CPR Part 33 and/or 35) and the Jackson reforms.

Legal (Non-CPR) Weather Reports are also available for reference or as a guide only. These legal weather reports cannot be disclosed as evidence in a court of law as the report would not be fully researched and would only show a snapshot of raw daily or hourly data in the surrounding area of the incident.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Dr Richard Wild for a weather report in cases where there is an issue as to whether the occurrence of the accident was caused or contributed to by the prevailing weather conditions, as such a report can mean, and has meant for me, the difference between the success or failure of the case”.
