Failure to Follow the Doctor’s Orders

Non-Compliance Can Cost You Your Insurance Claim

accident victim filing insurance claim for medical bills

No one likes to go to the doctor.  It's often they never call you back when they say they will and it eats up a chunk of your very important day.  Even if you have been in an accident and recovering, we have many, many clients who miss appointments, skip treatments, and do not adhere closely to their doctors' orders because they want (and need) to get back to work, and their daily routine before the accident, as soon as possible.  And while we completely understand, we know our clients are frustrated by the fact an accident and injury has completely turned their life upside down, we often have to remind them how very important it is to schedule and attend all appointments your doctor recommends.  

Schedule and Attend All Appointments and Follow All Orders

A failure to make appointments, follow the treatment prescribed, and follow your doctor's orders diligently could have a negative impact on your personal injury claim.  Many insurance companies will try to point to your non-compliance as a basis for the insurance company to deny or underpay your claim.  If you have been in an accident, and have questions about treatment prescribed or whether your medical bills will be covered, contact us.  We never charge any fee or cost for an initial consultation to sit down and explain your rights.
