How to claim compensation in St Peter Port
One aspect of your claim that you will need to travel for is your medical assessment. Our injury solicitors will need to arrange for you to see a medical expert who will remain independent throughout the claims process. They will need to be granted access to your medical records and they will assess these, in conjunction with performing a physical examination of yourself, to determine the real extent of your injuries.
Our injury solicitors will arrange for you to visit a professional as close to you as is reasonably practicable to ensure you do not have to travel far. It is also important to remember that our injury solicitors will be able to assist you in recovering the costs associated with this travel, so make sure you keep receipts in the form of public transport costs, or make a note of the mileage traveled so we can arrange for you to be compensated for that as well.
The medical report that is prepared as a result of this assessment will, unlike your previous meeting with your GP or other healthcare professional, take into account how much time you are likely to take to recover from your injuries. This is important as it assesses how much of an impact the injury has had on your life and lifestyle. It is this information that is specifically taken into account to determine how much compensation you will be entitled to. Compensation amounts will vary depending on the severity of your injuries.
