You Should Inform Your Doctor of Any Injuries
Video Transcribed: Do you need to tell your doctors about your injuries from a car wreck? Hey everyone, Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, specializing in personal injury in Oklahoma.
Today we’re going to be talking about whether or not you should tell your doctors about the injuries you received from a motor vehicle collision. Now, a lot of the time people don’t want to come across as whiners.
They don’t want to be seen as complaining about every little thing that’s going on, but in the case of a motor vehicle collision, it could be very beneficial to fully express to your doctors everything that’s going on with you.
Now in the past, we’ve had multiple clients who they just fully articulated everything to their doctor from having a bit of extra pain in their knee that wasn’t there before, a slight crick in the neck.
Little things that a lot of people might just brush aside and say, “Oh, I don’t want to bring that up.” But by bringing that up to your medical provider, you can help build that foundation that later whenever you’re going back through your medical records, have that concrete basis to saying, “Hey, here’s what the person was experiencing on this date at this time.” And really helps paint the narrative of what that person went through. And our clients, it has really helped them to be able to have that.
Now that’s not to say that if you don’t bring it up, then it never happened, but it’s much easier to be able to point to specific instances and say, “Hey, here’s an exact example of what they were going through on this day.” Now, if you find yourself to be a victim of a motor vehicle collision, feel free to reach out to us.
