Case Killer: Telling the Doctor About Your Injury Case

Here at the Anderson Law Firm, we have what we call case killers, or things that our clients do or don't do that can really harm their case. One of these case killers is talking to the doctor about your injury claim. When you're at the doctor or physical therapist, you should focus on your problem, report your injuries and be honest but don't talk about your claim, it looks bad. The insurance company or the jury later on, gets to see these medical records. If you're talking about your claim, it shows that you're focused on money and not on getting better. It's a big no no. So let your lawyer focus on getting the money, you focus on getting better. Don't talk the doctor or any medical professional about your injury claim.
