The medical assessment process

An undisclosed condition can have a detrimental affect on your claim if it is discovered later on in the process.

While there you will be expected to answer a number of questions about your injury and the accident. Always be honest as this is the best way of getting the result that you desire. You will then be given a thorough examination which will last up to twenty minutes.
