Do I need to go to the hospital to claim personal injury?
You don’t have to go to hospital to claim personal injury. Later in your claim, we would instruct a medical expert to examine you and to prepare an independent report on your injuries. This report can sometimes be done to include a review of your records but just because you did not go to hospital, does not mean you were not injured.
What we do recommend to anyone, client or otherwise, is that after any kind of incident where you have been injured, if it looks like you should go to hospital, or if there is any doubt about it, then you should go and seek medical advice and treatment. At MG Legal, we are very good at what we do in the field of Law, but we are not doctors and so we strongly recommend that you see one if you are uncertain.
