Doctors will typically prescribe medication to alleviate the physical pain caused by your Motorcycle accident. This detail, whether your prescription is for a generic pain killer or something more serious, is important in legitimizing your injury claim. The longer a doctor prescribes medication and the greater the strength of the medicine, the more likely insurance will pay for your medical bills.
Insurance companies will use your pain to their advantage if they can. Don’t make snap decisions while taking pain medication. Maintain a record of all medical related bills in order to recoup all expenses in your settlement.
Your personal recovery time may vary for a number of reasons. The severity of your injury, your age and medical history all play a part in returning to full health. Your settlement should reflect the amount of time you need to recover.
Beyond just bills, maintain a record of everything regarding your medical care that you possibly can. Ask your doctor to create a treatment plan that estimates the length of your recovery before returning to normal activities like work. In this way, insurance companies can better define your loss of wages.
It’s of the utmost importance that you visit your doctor regularly during recovery. Missing appointments gives insurance companies a window to say your pain isn’t real.
