Why do our Merthyr Tydfil no win no fee* solicitors use medical experts?
When you decide to make a personal injury claim it is important that you present various pieces of medical information as part of the evidence for that claim.
In the first instance, your medical records will need to be presented. Your Merthyr Tydfil no win no fee* solicitors will use this to demonstrate that you were injured seriously enough at the time of your accident that you had to seek medical attention, and this will be demonstrated in your records.
Equally, your records will demonstrate that you were not suffering from your injury prior to the accident – which again will provide suitable evidence that the accident itself was the cause of your injury and pain.
However, this is not the sole purpose of medical experts.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our Merthyr Tydfil no win no fee* solicitors use the assessment of a medical expert to help determine how much compensation you could be entitled to as part of your claim.
Although we offer a 30-second test to determine how much a specific injury is likely to be worth in terms of compensation, this is solely a guideline. We appreciate that every injury is different and even a “injury of the arm” can mean widely different things to different people.
A medical expert will be able to assess the precise amount of damage that such an injury has caused to you, and the impact it may have had on your life. For example, if you were a new mother you may have found that as a result of your arm injury you were unable to hold and properly care for your baby. As a result, you may have had to pay for someone to come in to your home and provide assistance. You may even have developed post-natal depression or other anxiety issues as a result of not being able to bond properly.
If you have been in a car accident your physical injuries may be relatively minor, however the psychological impact could be much greater. Our Merthyr Tydfil no win no fee* solicitors have worked with clients in the past who have suffered from post traumatic stress as a result of severe car accidents which they were luckily enough to walk away from with minor injuries and ailments.
