Elements Affecting Success in your Claim

It is easy to think that all medical services are the same as they all work towards you getting better. However, this is not true when it comes to valuing your personal injury claim. Take note of the following:

  • Diagnosis – before you can be treated you need a diagnosis from a doctor. In order to come up with a diagnosis, it may require running tests or exams. However, in other cases, the diagnosis is easy to determine. A diagnosis directly affects how much you will receive in your personal injury claim when entails many tests and exams. This is because such research runs up a high medical bill. Conversely, a number of medical tests and exams may be carried out and the diagnosis may require little treatment. When this happens, insurance adjusters use a lower multiplier based on the treatment received. Unfortunately, the lower multiplier does not accurately show the person’s pain and suffering.
  • Medical professionals, facilities, and non-medical professionals – non-medical professionals refer to persons who practice physical therapy, acupuncture, and alternative medicine. Generally, people give more weight to the word of a medical professional. Any medical bill issued by a doctor or hospital is considered to be legitimate. While those from non-physician medical providers attract a lower multiplier.
  • Non-physician medical providers – treatment that is provided by herbalists, massage therapists, non-physician healers, etc. is effective. However, more often than not result in insurance adjusters using a lower multiplier. Further, there are likely to results in the victim receiving a lower rate of compensation.
