We Consider Your Long-term Recovery in Your Claim
On the surface, it may seem that you have identified all of your damages. But there may be some hidden injuries that do not display symptoms until much later after the accident occurs. Problems may surface later and indicate ongoing medical conditions that create continuous medical expenses.
For example, an initial diagnosis might not show every injury you sustained from the accident. However, as you heal, you will want to be sure that there are no complications later. This is why it is important to seek medical attention right away after your accident to connect your injuries to your accident.
In all cases seeking compensation, your medical records help your case. Often, injured parties must visit a physician several times to check their progress throughout an extended time as you heal. It is critical that an injured person continue treatment for as long as is necessary to document the severity of the injuries related to the accident.
