  • Your Accident Injury Claims: Be Alert While Talking To Your Doctor

    September 6, 2018

    Insurance companies have to compensate injured persons for income-loss, medical and rehabilitation expenses, disability, death, pain and suffering, care-giver expenses etc based on the contract signed with the insured person. However, they may not act in good faith because they are focused on protecting their own business interests. Hence they may dispute or deny your claim based on various technical aspects.

    A vital aspect is the medical testimony of your treating doctor. It’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention if you or a loved one has been involved in an accident. You may assume that your injuries are minor or that you’re completely unhurt. However, from a medical, legal and insurance point of view, it’s important to consult a doctor and leave a paper-trail. Otherwise it’s difficult to establish the connection between injury and accident.

    Be completely frank in disclosing health status, habits, medical history, circumstances of the accident etc to your doctor. Never discuss legal concerns with your doctor. You could create a negative bias. Follow medical prescriptions/orders strictly and don’t miss appointments. Tell your doctor about all your symptoms including pain, emotional state, changes etc. without exaggeration. If you’re unable to work because of injuries/pain/disability/depression/anxiety, ensure that this goes on your medical record. Don’t forget to maintain an accident and medical journal to record each and every incident, report, test, diagnosis, treatment, medication, conversation etc related to your injuries.

    An experienced personal injury lawyer team can help you get the best medical treatment available and also ensure that your rights and entitlements are safeguarded.
