The final report from the consultant orthopaedic surgeon states - 'On balance based on the available clinical information, it is most likely that Mrs Yates would experience mild symptoms in her neck and right upper limb indefinitely "permanently" beyond the initial 24 months post incident. These residual symptoms beyond the initial 24 months post incident are unlikely to cause any significant functional restriction. She would require some modification to her work activities with adequate breaks in between.' In addition to this the accident has left my wife with increased nervousness whilst driving and so the consultant also states 'In view of the psychological symptoms that you may wish to consider a report from a psychologist'. No such report has been sought.
I hope that this provides you with what you require.
Thank you, Paul.
How do we commission another independent specialist report? Do we need to do this before we engage the solicitor as you describe (and if so with whom do we liaise and how do we ensure that our costs can be reclaimed) or can this be picked up as part of the no win no fee activities?
