Following Physician Instructions is Essential to Your North Carolina Personal Injury Claim
At Roberts & Harris, PC, our Raleigh personal injury lawyers know that establishing that our clients have suffered injuries that resulted in damages is the cornerstone of building a successful claim on their behalf.
After collectively serving as lead counsel in over one hundred jury trials that allowed our clients to reach successful outcomes, our Wake County attorneys also know that seeking medical care immediately after suffering a personal injury gives our clients the best chance at getting their lives back on track.
If you have been hurt in a vehicle collision, slip, and fall accident, or while seeking medical care, the best way to ensure all of your injuries are accounted for, outlined, and assigned a treatment plan is to seek medical care right away and follow all physician instructions for the duration of your care.
Here are several more reasons why that is so important for our North Carolina clients.
Your Medical Records Support Your Complete North Carolina Personal Injury Claim
Whether you are rushed to an emergency room by first responders or seek medical care on your own after being hurt by another person’s negligence, your ability to file a personal injury claim depends on your professional medical and injury diagnosis.
Failing to seek medical care will give the insurance company the leverage they need to deny your financial recovery claim, stating that you must not have been hurt at all if your injuries did not warrant medical attention.
Have You Already Sought Medical Care for Your Personal Injuries?
If you did seek medical care immediately after your accident and personal injuries occurred, the next important detail is to follow all physician instructions for the duration outlined in your treatment plan.
All personal injuries are unique and depend on the extent of yours — whether it is broken bones or a traumatic brain injury your recovery timeline could take weeks, months, or even a lifetime.
Your personal injury case’s success requires you to attend all physician appointments and follow-up care, including therapy and rehabilitation appointments, and to take all prescriptions and use all medical devices required by your doctors. That could include using crutches, stabilizing braces, and other equipment that will aid in your recovery.
If you stop following your physician’s instructions, the insurance company will know about it and insist you are no longer injured enough to continue the required care. This is when your personal injury claim will begin to fall apart.
Keep in mind, the insurance company will search for any reason to undervalue or deny your personal injury claim. Do not give them the evidence they need to do so.
