We have discussed before how important the doctor’s records are to your work injury case.
So try this tip to make sure that the records are helpful and accurate.
Ask the nurse, physician’s assistant, or doctor to read back to you what you tell them about how your injury happened and what problems you are having.
This will not take very long and it will help your case immensely.
Many doctors’s offices will not change the records at a later date.
Having the provider go over the history at the time of the appointment gives you the chance to have them change the notes right away.
It may make the difference between winning and losing.
