Follow Your Doctor’s Orders After a Philadelphia Construction Accident

If you have suffered serious injuries in a Philadelphia construction accident, you should seek medical treatment and follow your doctor's advice. This is very important if you decide to pursue a Pennsylvania personal injury claim.

Failing to follow through with your doctor's treatment plan is just one way you could damage your injury claim

By all means, don't use the following excuses to avoid treatment:
 

  • I can't take time off from work;
  • I don't have transportation;
  • I can't afford to see a doctor; or
  • I can't leave the kids alone. 


Although it may be a challenge to rearrange your work schedule or get someone to look after your children, if you don't do these things, the insurance companies will assume you have no real injuries.

On the other hand, you should also avoid over-treating your injuries. It is not particularly true that the more treatment you receive, the higher your claim's value. You can only recover compensation considered reasonable and necessary. This means you will not get a free pass for treatments such as acupuncture, massage therapy or aroma therapy.

Pennsylvania personal injury cases are all about credibility. If you lose your credibility, you stand a good chance of damaging your case and losing out on compensation.
