After an accident, one of the most stressful aspects is often the difficulty our clients have getting back to a normal life. There is the stress of dealing with property loss, doctor bills, and bothersome phone calls from the insurance company. There is also the reality of real physical and emotional pain that lingers after an accident. This stressful reality our clients feel is further amplified by the inconvenience of doctor appointments that interfere with work or other activities, all while they try to deal with the pain that interferes or stops them from enjoying their life activities. All these stresses bottle up and without a plan and some help sometimes overflow causing depression.
We Can Help You Following an Accident
At Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers, we help our clients navigate the stress that comes with an injury accident. If possible, our goal is to help them get their life back to normal. Unfortunately, there are accidents that forever alter a client’s health, so returning to a normal life is not possible. We fight for all our clients to ensure all damages, whether temporary or permanent, are awarded maximum value.
The Importance of Medical Treatment Following an Accident
For most clients, the first step is to complete their medical treatment. If there is permanency after a client reaches maximum medical improvement, we will often hire medical experts to prove those damages. The important part for any injury victim is to go to all medical appointments and see their treatment through to the end. While the goal is to get one’s life back, it is also the best way to ensure you demonstrate to the big insurance company that you were compliant and received medically necessary treatment. In most cases in Tennessee, the insurance company must use the gross medical charges and documentation of treatment as a starting point for valuing your claim.
The insurance company is all too happy to use missed appointments or shortened treatment times to limit and reduce the value of your claim. The insurance company does not care why you made these decisions or that it may permanently impact your way of life. The insurance company is simply focused on limiting what it will have to pay. The best decision for you and your family is to seek treatment fast and to then complete that treatment. This not only leads to you feeling your best physically and emotionally, but also makes sure you get full value from the insurance company.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to your health. There are also no shortcuts when it comes to fighting the insurance company to get what you deserve. Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers has recovered millions for our clients by helping them after an injury accident.
