Medical Records

We just completed this week's edition of our "HCW: How Can We?" Youtube series. This video deals with how you can add value to your case using your medical records and it is a very practical and easy way to help your attorney get you more money for your Connecticut accident or injury case.

As you will probably notice, each time you go to the doctor and tell the doctor about your accident-related injuries, how they are affecting you and what problems and restrictions you are experiencing your doctor will be either taking notes or typing them into the computer. This information will become a part of your medical record.

As you proceed through your course and care of medical treatment, we will request your medical records from your various medical providers so we can send this information over to the insurance adjuster representing the person that caused your accident.

If you are quite detailed in describing to your doctor how you are feeling, what specific body parts are affected and what types of pain you are experiencing, how your accident-related injuries are affecting you, how much pain you are experiencing, how much suffering you are going through, what time you are missing from work, how you are restricted in your daily activities, and any and all other information then this should make its way into your medical records.

The more robust your medical records are with these complaints the easier it will be for your attorney to show to the adjuster how your accident-related injuries are having a very negative effect upon you which will add value to your case.

So make sure that you are very detailed in describing all aspects of your accident case to your doctor each time you appear for a visit. The same is true of any therapists or other healthcare providers. You should also make sure that you make notes of all of these issues so when you go to the doctor you can refer to your notes so you do not miss or forget anything.

If you have any problems or questions about your Connecticut accident or injury case please feel free to contact one of our experienced CT personal injury lawyers so we can answer your questions and provide you with specific information about your particular case.
