How COVID-19 Could Impact Your Personal Injury Claim
The nature of personal injury claims are changing, and the attorneys here at BSGFD are adapting to maximize your recovery. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, fewer and fewer people are receiving medical care for “non-emergency” matters.
If you have been injured in an automobile collision, you may feel that you need to seek medical treatment, especially if your pain impacts your activities of daily living. If you were already receiving medical treatment related to your auto collision, you may wonder if you should continue visiting a doctor’s office during this time.
If you don’t feel comfortable presenting to a physician at this time, many doctors’ offices are conducting appointments by live video or through other accommodations. It is important to keep in mind that the value of your injury claim, to an extent, depends on how much medical treatment and what kind of treatment you received. If your physical therapist or chiropractor has already prescribed a home exercise program for you, be sure to keep a record of the exercises you are performing each day because it will be beneficial in proving your damages.
If you fail to receive any medical treatment for your injuries, it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to prove the damages you sustained from the incident.
