Importance of Appropriate Medical Treatment

If you were injured in a car wreck, the absolute most important thing you can do is seek medical treatment and comply with your doctor’s directions. One of the most fatal events in a personal injury case is delayed medical treatment or gaps in medical treatment. 

Your attorney will know what pockets of insurance exist and if there is any insurance immediately available to cover your medical bills. 

The last thing anybody wants is to interrupt their daily routine for doctors’ appointments and dealing with insurance issues, especially when it’s caused by someone else’s carelessness. The absolute best thing you can do to maximize your injury settlement value and as a service to your future self, is get the medical treatment you need in a timely manner.

Delaying medical treatment in a personal injury case increases your likelihood that you will be dealing with your injuries for longer than necessary. We don’t want you looking back in twenty years and thinking your neck has never been the same since that car wreck. Delaying medical treatment can also mean that your injuries are not appropriately compensated in your personal injury claim. 

If you have any questions about your injury related medical treatment or insurance, give our office a call.
