Your Medical Treatment


With your help, our legal team will collect information about your medical history and your current medical care and treatment. Obtaining a complete set of your past and present medical history and records is essential to the prosecution of your case. For this reason, it is important that you provide us with the names of all health care providers who have treated you in the past as well as those who are treating you now. This includes hospitals and other medical institutions. Your trucking accident lawyer will ask you for:


• A detailed and complete description of your injuries

• The names of the health care providers who are treating you and the places where you are receiving treatment

• Information regarding prior injuries and medical conditions which may be similar to those you suffered in your accident

• Information about previous accidents, illnesses, or current medical conditions even though they may be unrelated to your case


You will provide us written authorization to obtain the following documents from your health care providers:

• Medical records and reports

• Hospital records

• Medical bills


We can move your case along more quickly and smoothly if you do the following:

• Keep all appointments with your health care providers as scheduled; inform us when you reschedule appointments.

• Describe to your doctor(s) in detail where you hurt and how your injuries affect your activities of daily living including your ability to work.

• Continue to see your doctor(s) on the schedule he prescribes until he releases you from his care; upon release call your legal assistant immediately.

• Give complete health insurance information to all health care providers and follow up with them on a regular basis to make sure your health insurer is paying your medical bills as required under your insurance contract.

• Keep all doctor’s bills, prescription receipts, and other accident-related payments records and send them to us promptly.


If there is medical payments coverage available to you through your own or someone else’s motor vehicle insurance company, we will handle your medical expense claim without charging you a legal fee.
