My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

You have a conflict of interest as it is your claim and you cannot give the report. It has to be from an independent contractor that has not conflict.

Do you know of anyone that can provide the report?
