Seek Medical Treatment to Make Your Personal Injury Case Stronger after an Accident

If you have suffered an injury in a car accident, you should first seek medical treatment for your recovery as early as possible. At the same time, you and your close family members should also consult an eminent lawyer from Naqvi injury law firm for lawsuit file and compensation claim against the at-fault driver.

Immediate medical attention is a must for the accident victims. Your quick recovery is important and it is a serious consideration in a personal injury law case.

The insurance company and the court will never accept your words until some evidences are submitted in support of your claims. They will value only what your doctor says. If you fail to produce medical bills for your treatment after an accident, there is no way to convince the insurer that you are injured and seriousness of your injury.

Only medical treatment can judge severity of your injury: If you take a ‘let go’ attitude despite suffering an injury in a car crash, it is unlikely for the juries to believe that you were really injured. Bad injury always requires urgent medical treatment and the treatment goes on for a long time. If you neglect that, the juries will not be convinced of your injury.

It is up to you to decide which clinic to visit for healthcare treatment and whom to choose for that purpose. However, there are some suggestions for you in this regard.

  • If possible, avoid visiting the doctor suggested by your attorney. While there is nothing wrong in a lawyer’s suggesting the name of a chiropractor for you injury nursing, it is not right to send the clients to the same doctor times and again. Even if the doctor is an eminent one, it may seem that the attorney and chiropractor share a business rapport. And when our common sense tells us to suspect a nexus, the same hold true for the insurance company and juries.
  • It is better to receive treatment from a doctor who will listen to you. You should follow this rule every time you seek medical treatment. However, it is most important in personal injury cases. Some doctors don’t like compensation claims in personal injury cases and won’t agree to testify for you. And there is no way to force them. As soon as they come to know that you are involved into a personal injury case, they will start thinking that you are exaggerating your suffering to extract money as much as possible. You may not get proper care and treatment that you need.

Medical bill is a big concern for the accident victims. If you are concerned about receiving proper medical care after a car crash, you should remember that your insurer is obliged to bear all of your medical expenses for a year after the accident.  It is known as “personal injury protection”.

While lodging a compensation claim, it is important to make a file of medical bills you have been paying since the first treatment for your injury till date. Gird up your loins if you want to obtain the just amount of compensation.
