How Important are Medical Records to Your Injury Case

Whether you have a work injury case or a Social Security Disability case the medical records will tell the tale of whether you win or lose.

The Arbitrator or Judge will examine the medical records closely to determine how you were hurt, what injuries you sustained, your medical treatment, how your injuries limit your activities.

Make sure that your medical records accurately reflect the reality of your injury and your condition.

Tell the doctor and nurses if you were hurt at work and how it happened.

Tell the medical providers all the body parts that are injured

Tell your doctors how you hurt now and how it bothers your lifting, walking, standing, or use of your hands and arms.

Do you need to elevate your legs throughout the day? Tell the doctor.

Do you need a cane or brace? Tell the doctor.

Make sure that your medical records help your case, not hurt it.
