If I’ve seen my own doctor, do I need to see another medical expert?

The aim of the medical report is to provide an independent assessment to the court to support your claim for personal injury compensation (your case will most likely be settled on the basis of the medical report alone, before your case reaches court). The expert will have specialist knowledge of the type of injuries you have suffered and be experienced in providing medical evidence. The medical expert needs to be unbiased and unconnected with the person making the claim.
