Understand Reporting an Injury to the Doctor With an Attorney
When you meet with your doctor, it is important that you do not exaggerate or downplay your injuries. You need to be accurate and consistent in order to maintain your credibility. Insurance adjusters deal with these kinds of statements on a regular basis and will be able to tell if you are being dishonest. Even a simple mistake, such as overestimating the weight of an object you were lifting that caused an accident, can undermine your credibility.
If you are honest with your doctor and with your employer, you will receive the treatment you need and your workers’ compensation claim will be backed up by the medical evidence.
