Below are 3 tips for getting the recovery that you deserve after your car accident:
- IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR INJURY ATTORNEY
You must keep us updated on your treatment and the progress of your recovery. Update our office with any changes in your health, any new medical providers that you are seeing in regards to your injuries, and anything else that you think might affect your case. If you are subsequently injured in another accident, we absolutely must know about it.
- COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PROBLEMS TO YOUR MEDICAL CARE PROVIDERSAs discussed above, it is critical to communicate your health status to us, but injuries that are just reported to your injury attorney are virtually meaningless. Your medical records are the most important part of your car accident injury claim. It is extremely important to tell medical care providers about all of your injuries, pain symptoms and complaints. This includes pain you are experiencing while performing duties such as domestic (chores or activities inside the home) household (chores or activities outside the home) work or educational duties.
- FOLLOW YOUR MEDICAL CARE PROVIDER'S ORDERSFollowing your medical care provider's treatment plan is critical to your recovery, and it also provides evidence that you are taking responsibility for your recovery. It is extremely important to follow your physician's instructions including but not limited to: attending all appointments, participating in home exercise programs, following up with specialists you are referred to you, etc. You are the only person responsible for your recovery. If you do not take your treatment seriously and follow the instructions of your medical care providers, the insurance company won't.
