I’m often contacted by potential clients a few days after they’ve been involved in a car crash. Once I get involved in a case, I talk with the insurance companies and advise my client on how best to proceed. I always urge my clients not to discuss their case with anyone, especially insurance adjusters. I explain what it means to have a “gap in treatment” and how that can affect your case and damage your claim. Clients are always advised to follow up on prescribed medical treatments, follow doctors advice, and be clear and upfront with medical providers about their symptoms and issues, as these notes will end up in their medical records, and can be used to bolster a claim.
