So what is one example of what you can be doing to help get more money for your Bridgeport Connecticut accident case?

One of the things that the insurance company of the at fault party will be doing is carefully analyzing your medical records to look for ways that they can pay you the least amount of money possible. So if you want to assist your Bridgeport Connecticut injury lawyer in helping to get you more money for your case you have to be aware of the fact that every time you see your doctor that an office note will be taken down by your doctor indicating what was discussed at your visit. It is very important that you prepare for each and every one of your doctor appointments in advance of meeting so you can make notes of all of the problems, injuries, symptoms and restrictions that you are experiencing as a result of your accident. Many times a doctor will come in to see a patient and will ask the patient; how are you? In certain instances, the patient will respond by saying something like; I'm fine. This is how most of us respond to this type of a question in our everyday lives. However, when your doctor asks you how you are doing, the doctor is really asking how are you doing medically and what problems are you experiencing as a result of your accident.

When you go to see your treating physician you should tell your doctor about every pain, problem, restriction and injury which you are suffering from as a result of your accident. Do you experience a sharp pain or a dull pain? Does your pain radiate from one part of your body to another? How frequently do you experience these pains, how long do these pains last, do they occur more frequently during specific times of the day and how to these pains affect you? What restrictions are you experiencing? What activities can you no longer perform? What activities do you perform differently? What hobbies were sporting activities do you no longer participate in? What home exercises are you performing? What other doctors were healthcare providers are you seeing and what are they telling you? By being very detailed in your discussions that you have with your treating physician, at each medical appointment ,you will allow your doctor to provide you with the best type of treatment program and plan and your case should be properly documented by your doctor so that this information will make its way into your medical record. This is an excellent way to properly develop your case so that your complaints are adequately and properly reflected in your medical records which will be seen and carefully reviewed by the insurance company of the at fault party. This can only help to make your case better and will assist your Bridgeport accident lawyer in helping to get you more money.
