    Accident abroad

    Accident abroad 18th Oct 16 at 11:47 AM
    Hi,
    I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
    I had an accident when I was abroad. I hired a solicitor based over there and he has now asked me to get a medical assessment here in the UK as it would be easier and would be fully valid to use for the claim.
    I've asked my GP if he know where I can go to get the assessment but he only pointed me in the direction of a UK based solicitor. Was not interested at all to help.
    Do you guys know where I can go to have this assessment done.
    It is a knee injury.

    Thanks in advance,
    astjon

    Well if your GP isn't going to do the assessment or refer you to someone then you'll need to seek one out a surgeon specialising in knees privately.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I did contact company called Mobile Doctors, as they advertise medical assessment. But they only do it upon request from a solicitor

    Google "knee surgeons" in your local area.

    Not a great surprise.

    Were you in your own vehicle when this incident happened, or in a hire car? I presume the other driver is at fault.

    If your own, then get your insurer involved.
    If you were on foot, then it's probably worth getting your travel insurance involved.
