Whether your case involves a Work Injury, a car or truck crash, or a Social Security Disability claim be sure to tell your Doctor about all your problems.
In addition tell your Doctor what limitations and ongoing problems you have suffered as a result of your injury and conditions.
This is important because the value of your case increases with permanent or ongoing limitations and restrictions.
Disability is based on your permanent limitations and restrictions.
The best proof of limitations and restrictions is medical records and opinions of your treating doctor.
The doctors cannot treat you, examine you or provide an opinion unless you tell them regarding your ongoing problems and how they limit you.
