There are steps you can take to prove that you are trying to get better. Your Denver personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya will tell you to get medical care right away and keep seeing your doctors until they tell you that you are at maximum medical improvement.
Don’t wait for weeks after your accident to get medical care – or worse, see a doctor a couple of times but then stop going for several months after the accident. This is very important. If you delay getting care after your accident or have long periods between medical treatment, insurance adjusters and defense attorneys will use it against you.
Keep the appointments you make with your doctors. Not going to the doctor at all is bad enough, but if your medical record has a lot of “no-shows” marked in it, that’s almost as bad as not going to the doctor at all.
Your Denver auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya also will advise you to do what your doctor tells you. When it comes time to settle your case or if your case winds up in court and you haven’t followed your doctor’s orders, the insurance company will use that against you, too.
