Following a doctor's recommendations after a vehicle accident may seem obvious, but the fact is that many individuals fail to do so. They typically have the best of intentions, but once they start to feel better, they may abandon the advice given to them by their doctor. It's possible that they'll cancel follow-up appointments. For many reasons, including these two, we feel it is critical to heed the advice of doctors at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker.
The best way to recover from injury is to follow your doctor's advice
First and foremost, following your doctor's recommendations is the greatest approach to guarantee that your injury heals properly. This entails following their instructions to the letter, from adhering to their treatment plan to working with a physical therapist to attending follow-up sessions. Even if you feel well and think your injury has healed, it's advisable to stick with medical therapy until your doctor verifies your suspicions.
You might wind up with more difficult, long-term problems if you decide to quit your medical therapy. Soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains, are the most common examples. These injuries' symptoms might come and go, and if you don't get treatment, they can come back again and again.
If you do not continue with medical treatment, your personal injury case may be jeopardized
If the possibility of harming yourself physically isn't enough to persuade you, consider the possibility of harming your personal injury case. Remember that you must establish that you were hurt and that your injuries have had an impact on your life in order to win your case. It will be considerably more difficult to support this claim if you do not have consistent and recorded medical records.
If you have gaps in medical care, such as physical therapy, the insurance adjuster may argue that your injury was not as serious as you claim. They may also claim that you are ineligible for long-term medical expenses related to the injury because your injury would not have been as bad if you had received constant medical attention.
