Managing a Permanent Injury

The Importance of Seeing a Specialist

It’s important to see the right doctor to ensure your car accident injuries heal property. While you’re likely anxious to get better, you want to have the best opportunity to get back to your pre-car crash self with as little impairment as possible.

If Healing Plateaus 

What happens if you complete your treatment and you’re not completely better? What if you have reached the maximum level of improvement?

If that happens, your doctors need to objectively document the level of impairment you’re continuing to suffer.

Looking to the Future

Your medical records become part of the settlement demand made to the insurance company. So, If there is potential future treatment for you, or if there are no other treatment options, it’s imperative your physician makes these notes in your records.

In the event your case proceeds to a lawsuit, all of this will be evidence for litigation: discovery, depositions, and trial.
