“GAPS” IN TREATMENT FOLLOWING YOUR CAR ACCIDENT
Posted by Ben Sessions | | Car / Auto Accident
Be very careful about the “gaps” in treatment following your car accident. Gaps in treatment are spaces in time in which you are not being treated by or seeking treatment for injuries arising from your car accident.
GAPS IN TREATMENT CAN BE THE DEATH KNELL TO YOUR CASE.
When we when we begin working your case, you will see that the insurer does everything possible to deny your claim. They will look at your criminal history, prior accident or incidents, prior medical history, prior claims, and whether you followed your medical care providers’ directions for your care following your care accident.
Insurers attempt to use the gaps in medical care in two ways:
- Insurers attempt to use the gap in treatment from medical care providers to argue that you were not really following your car accident,
- Insurers attempt to use the gap in treatment from medical care providers to argue that you did not do everything possible to mitigate your injuries or damages following the car accident.
