Personal Injury Claim: Medical Records
The accident attorneys at our office believe that knowledge is power. Our lawyers write books about personal injury cases, post blogs about nearly everything that clients could have a question about, and now they are sharing the top things to remember during a personal injury case.
One of the important things that personal injury victims should be aware of is regarding their medical records and relationship with their doctor.
Make sure that your doctor is aware of all of your symptoms so that your medical records are complete as they may be produced in a court or submitted to the insurance company at a later time. It is very difficult to argue, much less prove, that you had certain symptoms when they do not appear in your medical records.
We cannot stress how important it is to be honest with your doctor, explain ALL of your symptoms to them, and make sure that everything is documented. Doing so will make the claims process much easier for you and your lawyer.
Having the proper documentation to prove your injuries is the key to your case. If you do not see a doctor and receive medical treatment and documentation that coincides with your injury claims, it would be difficult to prove the extent of your injuries.
It is also critical to go through the entire treatment process. Do not stop physical therapy early or fail to follow up with appointments. Having documentation that documents every step of the process will once again prove how serious your injuries were and help you to receive the compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The accident attorneys at our office help clients by recommending the best doctors in the area for their injuries. Since we are immersed in this practice area on a daily basis, our team knows the best doctors in the area for each type of injury and will recommend them to you and help clients to get appointments. We provide clients with a network of individuals who help with every step of the personal injury claims process.
