The medical appointment is arranged so that the medical expert instructed on your behalf can assess the nature and extent of your injuries. The expert will interview you and carry out an assessment to prepare a medical report. This report will detail:
- the information discussed at the appointment.
- the expert’s view on your injuries, an expected recovery time.
- to what extent the injuries were caused wholly or partially by the accident.
- recommend any further medical support that may be beneficial.
It is important you tell the medical expert about all the injuries you sustained as a result of the accident, including injuries that you have recovered from, any new injuries or symptoms that you may have developed, and any pre-existing medical conditions/injuries or previous RTAs. Please have photographic ID ready for your appointment e.g. passport, driving license or identity card. This provides the majority of the information the expert needs to complete their report. The expert is not there to provide treatment or prescribe medication; If you require further treatment you should contact your own GP or treating consultant.
