After a road accident in which you may have sustained serious injuries, it is likely that you will have plenty of hospital and doctor’s appointments in the weeks and months that follow.
It is important that you learn what you need to talk about and tell your doctor at these appointments so that they are a good use of both yours and your doctor’s time, so that you are able to make road accident claims in West Lindsey, and so that you continue to recover well. Here are some of the things that you should cover with your doctor, during your appointment.
If you are not ready to return to work then your doctor will need to provide you with a medical certificate for work, and which will also help you to claim benefits to keep you afloat during this time.
Mention that you need a new medical certificate, and also that you need a full medical assessment before you leave, as this will help you to claim compensation as well.
How you are recovering
Be honest and don’t tell your doctor that you are feeling much better when you are not.
It is important that your doctor knows exactly how you are feeling and recovering so that they can decide what the next course of action is in your treatment.
Symptoms which seem unrelated
If you are sleeping badly, feeling agitated or suffering from headaches, mention these things to your doctor. Even if you are suffering from a broken foot, any symptoms you are suffering from could actually relate to your accident, and your doctor needs to know about them.
