If you’ve suffered a serious injury, it is important to get trustworthy medical advice and follow it. But sometimes, you may feel that all the work in rehabilitation and treatment is too painful. Or maybe you aren’t feeling up to it? Maybe you think it too time consuming to continue with your medical care? Think again.
Skipping treatments may not only set your recovery back, but if you are involved in a personal injury case, skipping treatments may seriously affect the value of your case. Discuss any concerns you have about the treatment with your doctor.
If you skip medical treatments or any part of your rehabilitation, the insurance defense lawyer will always use it against you. Remember that the burden of proof is on you—the plaintiff. An insurance company is always looking to hurt your claim so it can save money. Have you been injured? The injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Michael L. Neff urge you to follow your doctor’s orders. Your health and your case may depend on it!
