Leicestershire personal injury claims – medical evidence

When it comes to making Leicestershire personal injury claims it is important that your solicitor has been able to gather all of the evidence that is necessary to support your claim. This evidence can take various forms, from witness statements to CCTV footage if appropriate. However, arguably the most important form of evidence that your Leicestershire personal injury claims solicitor is likely to need when establishing your claim is medical evidence.

Why is medical evidence so important?

When people make Leicestershire personal injury claims it is because they have suffered some form of personal injury as a result of the actions of someone else. If you have been involved in an accident, but have not suffered any form of personal injury as a result, then you are not going to be able to make a claim for compensation. Therefore it is logical to assume that the personal injury you have suffered is the most important part of your claim (apart from of course liability).

Your Leicestershire personal injury claims solicitor will need to be able to provide evidence for the fact that you suffered an injury as a result of the accident you are claiming for, as well as proving that the injury has had a negative impact on your life in some way.

Medical history

In the first instance your Leicestershire personal injury claims solicitor will need you to provide them with access to your medical records. This is vital on two fronts.

Firstly, your medical records will demonstrate that you sought medical attention immediately, or at least very soon, after your accident. This will therefore provide evidence that you were indeed injured at the time you say you were, in the manner which you say you were.

Secondly, your medical records will demonstrate that you were not suffering from the condition you are claiming for prior to your accident. This is important as the other side’s solicitors may argue that an accident was “staged” in order to be able to claim for a pre-existing condition.

Medical expert

Your Leicestershire personal injury claims solicitor will also arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert. This is important as occasionally a pre-existing condition can be worsened by an accident, and a medical expert will be able to provide evidence that this is the case for you.

The medical expert will also be able to determine the true extent of your injuries and how you have been affected by them since the time of your accident. This will provide your Leicestershire personal injury claims solicitor with useful information to determine how much compensation you might be entitled to.

To find out how much this might be you can take our 30 second test which will give you a good indication. Amounts will vary, so ask your solicitor for more information as yoru claim progresses.
