Three Things to Know When You Go To the Doctor

Hi guys, Chicago Lawyer Scott DeSalvo here.

In today’s video we are going to talk about the three things you need to be careful about when you go to your doctor for your personal injury case.

There are three things that you need to be aware of when you receive treatment for your personal injury. I am going to review those things for you right now.

The first thing you have to be aware of is make sure that you have a doctor who is sympathetic to you and is interested in helping you.

Here’s an example. In worker’s comp cases, a lot of times the company wants to recommend your doctor. If you go to a company doctor, the company doctors on the side of the company. What the doctor writes in the medical records can affect your case. Whatever you do, don’t treat with a doctor who is aggressive towards you. Make sure you treat with a doctor who is on your side.

Second, make sure you document all of your complaints with your doctor.

I see it all the time that somebody will go to the doctor.  They will complain about their neck but will forget to mention that their foot was hurt in the accident.

Several months later they will start to get treatment for the foot and at that point, there’s no document about a foot complaint until several months later.

So make sure whenever you go to visit the doctor, you complain about every part of your body that is injured.

The third thing you need to be mindful of at your doctor’s appointments is you have to follow the doctor’s advice.

If your medical record shows that you have lots of missed appointments, lots of cancelled therapy appointments, that sends a clear signal to the insurance company and to the defense attorney that they can use that information in front of a jury to make it look like you don’t comply with your doctors’ orders.

That’s why I always tell my clients: make all of your appointments and follow all of the doctor’s advice.

If you do these three things you’re much more likely to have smooth sailing in your personal injury case.

If you have been injured in an accident and you need to speak with a lawyer, I offer a free consultation.

Or if you are not ready to speak with a lawyer, I created a book that explains the ins and outs of personal injury cases.

You can get a copy of my book for free by clicking the picture of my book and DVD to be taken by website where you order the book.

I hope this information helps you.

Thanks for watching.
