Your solicitors have asked us to arrange an examination for you so that a medical report can be provided and used to assess the value of your personal injury claim for compensation. These notes are to help you understand the process clearly.
Pre examinationWhy do I need to attend an appointment? When will I receive the appointment details?
Attending the appointment
Most experts will allow you to take a friend or relative into the examination if you prefer to do so. If you attend alone but want a chaperone to be present for the examination, let the expert know. If you have a joint appointment on the same date as a family member/friend, make sure you arrive in time for the earliest appointment. If you prefer to be seen on your own, let the expert know.
