You Have a Doctor’s Appointment
We’ve reached out to remind you of an upcoming doctor’s appointment. Why do we do this? Simply put, missing doctor’s visits, skipping physical therapy, and no-showing for any medical appointment is a great way to lose your case.
When we stand in front of the jury or talk to the adjuster or defense counsel, we want to tell them about all the efforts you have made to get better. We want to show them each visit, each appointment, each hour invested in your recovery.
When we stand in front of the jury, assuming your case is tried, the defense will want to tell the jury about the times you did not make efforts to get better. The defense may attempt to show you were not really hurt, or you did not really care about “mitigating your damages,” you were just in it for the money. The first thing they will do is pull out your medical records and show all your missed appointments. Don’t give them that opportunity.
If something comes up, call ahead and reschedule your appointment. If the time you are going to physical therapy does not work, change it. If the clinic you’re receiving treatment at is too far away, ask us for a referral to somewhere closer. You are free to receive treatment from medical providers of your choice, but we are also able to assist you in finding providers. We just want you to make sure you’re getting all the treatment you need. If you’re having any issues with making your treatment, let us know right away so we can find a solution.
