Should I Seek Medical Attention After a Car Accident?
There are two primary reasons to consider seeking medical help after a car accident:
1. Speedy Recovery and Proper Treatment: Car accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from fractures and head injuries to whiplash and psychological trauma. In the immediate aftermath of a collision, it’s not always evident how severe your injuries are. Seeking medical assistance ensures you receive the necessary treatment to facilitate a faster and more effective recovery. Doctors can examine your condition, prescribe medications, suggest specialist consultations, and recommend rehabilitation or counselling, all tailored to your specific needs.
2. Strengthening Your Compensation Claim: A medical examination can provide crucial evidence for your compensation claim. The examination allows you to establish the extent of your injuries and how they have affected your life. The medical expert’s findings become an essential part of your claim, substantiating the severity of your injuries and their impact on various aspects of your daily activities, work, and hobbies. It also helps counter any arguments from insurance companies that might challenge your claim or offer inadequate settlements.
What to Expect During a Medical Assessment for Your Claim
If you decide to pursue a compensation claim following a car accident, you could be asked to attend a medical assessment. Typically, your solicitor will arrange this examination, which is conducted by an independent medical expert.
The purpose of the examination is to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your injuries and to determine the extent of your damages. During the examination, the medical expert will conduct a thorough assessment, including questions about your injuries, medical history, and the accident’s impact on your life. You may also be asked to perform specific physical tests or movements to evaluate your range of motion, as well as any pain or discomfort you’re experiencing.
Following the examination, the medical expert will compile a detailed report of their findings. This report serves as evidence in your compensation claim, offering an objective assessment of your injuries, their impact on your life, and an estimate of the time needed for your injuries to heal. It may also provide insights into any necessary ongoing treatment or rehabilitation.
