Medical care is one of the most important aspects you should consider after a car accident. It’s the most important way to focus on your physical recovery to deal with any injuries you may endure. However, your diagnosis is also crucial to your case.
A diagnosis does multiple things for your case. First, it tells insurance adjusters how severe your injuries are. Second, it tells insurance adjusters how long you need medical care and how long you may be out of work. Make sure you and your attorney are aligned with your medical needs moving forward to build a strong case.
Your Injury Severity
The doctor will perform tests, order scans, and more to diagnose your injury. They can explain what type of injury you sustain and how bad it is. For instance, if you sustain a spine injury in the crash, your doctor can tell you where on the spine the injury occurred and how bad it is. The more severe your injury, the more you may be able to recover.
Once a doctor diagnoses your injury, they can provide you with a treatment plan. Not only is this vital for your health, but it can also detail how long you need medical care. Your compensation can include ongoing medical expenses, and the length of your treatment can be a significant factor.
Your Total Compensation
Economic compensation that you recover for your injuries factors in your medical expenses and lost income. Your diagnosis can tell insurance adjusters how long you need to recover and how long you may be out of work. This information can help towards maximizing your total settlement or verdict.
