Obtaining Your Medical Report

The cost of the report will be met by the Compensator and we will not ask you for payment at
any time.

Once the compensator admits liability in full or part , the Official Injury Claim portal will direct you to “Proceed to Medical” where you choose the location of your examination.

You will then be signposted to “Select Your Medical Report Provider”. e-medicals are an approved Medical Reporting Organisation and we will book and manage your medical examination with one of our trusted accredited experts.

The Official Injury Claim portal will then pass your case details to us so we can arrange the examination in line with the preferences you have selected.

Within 24 hours we will pass across your case details to the instructed medical expert.

We will contact you to agree a convenient time and location for your examination.

Within 3 to 5 working days of your examination, the medical expert will send us the medical report
which we will upload to the Official Injury Claim portal.

Your Examination

The aim of the examination is to have your injuries assessed by an independent medical expert who will then prepare a report on the likely course of the injuries and how they have affected your daily life.

The expert will ask general questions about your accident circumstances and the injuries sustained. You will need to mention:

  • The impact the injuries have had on your life
  • Any time taken off work
  • Any treatment you have received

At the examination, you will be required to present one form of ID such as your passport or driving license. The examination will last approximately 15 minutes.

Checking Your Medical Report

You will be notified when your medical report has been uploaded into the Official Injury Claim portal.

You must review the medical report for factual errors or missing information, requesting any amendments through the Official Injury Claim portal.

The Official Injury Claim portal will then notify us of your amendment request which we will then present to the medical expert.

The medical expert has 10 days to respond and we will upload any amended reports into the Official Injury Claim portal.

Your medical report will not be shared with the compensator until you have checked it for factual errors.

Once you have accepted the report, it will be sent to the compensator.
