4 Medical Mistakes to Avoid after a California Auto Accident
If you have sustained serious bodily injuries after a California auto accident, you may be facing a lot of uncertainty about your recovery and treatment. Not only are you dealing with the healing process but you may plan on filing a Virginia personal injury claim. What you do directly after your accident, including when you seek medical attention, can have a huge impact on the outcome of that claim.
There are 4 medical mistakes that you should avoid after you have suffered injuries in a California auto accident that include:
- not seeking immediate medical attention after you have been involved in an accident;
- failing to provide your doctor with detailed descriptions of all your symptoms and how they are affecting your ability to function on a daily basis;
- failing to disclose your medical history, including prior injuries, to your doctor and lawyer; and
- not following your doctor’s orders, failing to complete your medical treatments or medical procedures, or failing to show up for your medical appointments.
These medical mistakes can significantly alter the outcome of your Virginia personal injury claim. By failing to seek treatment initially, you will have difficulty proving that those injuries were the direct result of your accident and not another cause. Failing to follow through with your treatments and doctor appointments show the insurance companies that you are not serious about your treatments, or that your injuries are not as severe as you claimed.
If you want to pursue compensation that is fair and full, speaking with a knowledgeable Manassas personal injury attorney should be your next step in order to protect your rights to accident compensation.
