DO I NEED A MEDICAL REPORT?

Yes, following an accident, be it a road traffic accident, an accident at work, or any other type of accident, you will need to have an independent medical report prepared.

The medical report assists our solicitors to value your claim accurately, it shows how long you suffered, the extent of your injuries and how it has affected your daily life, this ensures that our solicitors can claim the maximum compensation that you deserve, the medical report is free and you do not have to pay for it.

MEDICAL REPORT

WHAT IS A MEDICAL REPORT?

A medical report is a comprehensive report prepared by a medical professional following a medical examination.

It is formed as part of your compensation claim, to determine the extent of your injuries that you have suffered as a result of the accident, if you have had any pre-existing medical conditions prior to the accident, these could have been aggravated by the accident and this will also be documented in the medical report. The doctor may recommend that you be referred for physiotherapy to speed up the recovery time of your injuries, this will help you make a faster recovery helping you get back to your normal daily activities.

WHO WILL EXAMINE ME?

Your medical report will be prepared by way of an independent examination by one of our qualified doctors, if you have a gender preference and would like be examined by a male/female doctor for personal reasons this can be arranged, a medical report will be prepared detailing the symptoms of your injuries, and the recovery time for you to make a full recovery.  If at the time of the medical examination you are still suffering with any ongoing symptoms, the doctor will then estimate how long they believe it will take for you to make a full recovery, the medical report will also include how the symptoms have affected your daily work and private life. This will also count towards your final compensation value.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE MEDICAL REPORT TO BE PREPARED?

Following your medical examination, the medical report is usually prepared within 5 working days, the medical report is then forwarded to yourself to confirm that you are happy with the report. Once you are happy with medical report it is then forwarded to the third party insurers for them to make an offer of compensation.

PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS COMPENSATION CALCULATOR

When making a personal injury claim one of the most important things you would want to know is the value of your claim, we understand that and have created our online Personal Injury Claims Calculator.

At Hamilton Douglas Legal, our personal injury claims compensation calculator can be used to determine an approximate value of your personal injury claim, along with personal injury compensation levels that determine the total value of the claim. Compensation values depend on many factors such as the severity of the injury, the length of suffering, the cost of treatment and the impact it has had on your daily life.

Using our Personal Injury Claims Calculator is simple, straightforward and easy.

Simply select the part of the body affected, and the severity, the calculator will give you an approximate value of your compensation. You may have suffered injury to other parts of your body, these injuries will also count towards your total compensation valuation.

Please note the value of compensation is approximate and it is not possible to give an exact valuation, the amounts will vary depending on your personal circumstances. Many factors have to be considered when making a personal injury compensation calculation, as a result we suggest you contact one of our specialists who will be able to make a more accurate assessment of your claim.

There are a few steps to work through on our calculator, each question will be in relation to your accident.

Each answer you give will help our calculator understand your accident and the impact it has had on your daily life, your answers will help us give you an accurate valuation of your personal injury claim.

I was left with a broken arm after an accident at the Ice Rink. After the operation on my arm I should have been received physiotherapy within 10 days. Unfortunately this did not happen and as result I ended up with an extremely stiff shoulder. I am please to say after contacting H.D Partnership I was awarded £5650.00 for the medical negligence and I could not be more grateful. Thank you.
