Posted in Our Blog,Car Accidents on November 4, 2020

A Louisiana personal injury accident can leave any victim feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and worried about their future. Worse yet, many times, these victims have no idea what they are supposed to do following one of these horrific accidents, what doctors they need to contact, and how they can pay for all the medical expenses they have incurred because of their injuries.

Even though getting immediate medical care following a personal injury accident is critical. For many victims, this is just not possible. Yet, when you retain an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer following your accident, you do not have to go through this challenging ordeal on your own. In this blog post, we will detail why medical treatments are so essential for your personal injury claim and how the Law Office of John W. Redmann can help you get this critical care at no cost to you.

Medical Treatments are Essential For Your Health

Following an accident, you need to get checked out by a medical professional. Waiting too long to get examined can not only cause the injuries to get worse. But in some situations, these injuries may even turn deadly. For these reasons, even if you do not believe your injuries are significant, you still need to get to a doctor’s office. These physicians can ensure that you did not suffer any serious hidden injuries, such as head or brain trauma, while providing you the treatments you need. These doctors will also make sure to document their findings of your injury in their medical report. This report can become critical for your claim, especially if the defense or the insurance company tries to argue that your injury was caused by a subsequent event or a pre-existing injury.

Additionally, the doctors who treat you can also ask for you to follow-up with them for multiple treatments, refer you to a surgeon or a specialist, and even have you undergo several medical interventions. Unfortunately, for many personal injury victims, these medical treatments become a significant financial hardship. Leaving the victim to endure ongoing extensive medical bills. As a result, many of these personal injury victims cannot get the medical treatments they need because of these astronomical medical expenses.

Why Following a Doctor’s Orders is So Critical For Your Claim

Many victims may understand that getting examined by a doctor is vital for their health. However, what many victims fail to realize is that not getting checked out by a doctor can significantly impact their claim. For instance, failing to get to a doctor following an accident can result in the insurance company, arguing that your injuries are not that serious. If you do not attend any of the follow-up appointments or get the treatments recommended, the insurance company can also claim that you are healed. Both of these situations can result in the insurance company devaluing or denying your claim altogether and making it extremely difficult for your lawyer to get you the full value of your damages and medical expenses. That is why, following a personal injury accident, you need to:

  • Get to the doctor
  • Get copies of your medical records
  • Keep track of your medical treatments and the appointments you attended.
  • Keep receipts of the prescription medications or medical equipment you purchased
  • Make a note of every doctor you saw and what they indicated about your health and treatments
  • Stay off social media and avoid making comments about your injuries and the harm you endured

Keeping track of these medical plans, appointments, and treatments can help your lawyer show not only the extent of your injuries but that you followed the doctor’s orders and did everything they indicated for you to do.
