If you haven’t been to the doctor, then you’re not hurt. Well, that’s not really true, is it? People have great pain and suffering and never see a doctor even once. However, when you’re making a claim and you’re talking about insurance adjusters, judges, juries, even the defense attorneys – if you haven’t been to the doctor then you’re not hurt.
So, please as a client or potential client, if you are injured make your first visit to the medical facility. Go to an emergency room, go to urgent care, go to your own doctor, go to a doctor someone recommends, but please, for all practical purposes going to the doctor is what makes your case.
It’s the records from the doctor, and the medical bills that are the foundation of every personal injury case. And that’s why we say: a good patient is a great client.
