The Importance of Attending Medical Appointments

As lawyers handling personal injury cases in the Kansas City area for many years, we’ve learned how to drive up the value of our cases. One of the best ways to do that is to never miss or cancel a doctor appointment or therapy session. Here’s why.

Avoid Delays

Missing appointments creates significant delays with your case. It's hard to reschedule doctor’s appointments. Their next availability is often months away. Furthermore, missing appointments can create compound delays if you have to see one doctor before you can see the other. Since settling your case must wait until you are released from care, missing appointments postpones getting money compensation for your injuries.

It Shows You Care

Religious attendance to your doctor’s appointments sends the message that you are concerned about your health and well-being and are working to get better. You are not sitting around being lazy or feeling sorry for yourself. You are determined to get better. This can impress a jury and increase your chances of a good verdict (or a good settlement).

It Shows You Are Seriously Injured

Attending all of your doctor’s appointments sends the message that you were hurt seriously enough to get treatment. It also makes a record of your complaints and physical condition, which can be used to increase the value of your case.

If you’ve been injured in a car crash, trip or slip and fall, or any other accident, please be sure to attend all of your doctor appointments. This not only makes you better, but it increases the value of your case. If you’ve been in an accident like this, please contact our firm, we can help.
