Stage Three of a Personal Injury Claim- Treatment of Injuries until Reaching MMI-Maximum Medical Improvement

Categories:Working with an Attorney

In my last post, I talked about the second stage of a personal injury case: investigating of the accident scene, property damage, and injury.  In this article, I will be talking about an extremely important part of a claim-treatment of injuries until reaching MMI-maximum medical improvement.

This is the stage of a personal injury claim where the client must wholeheartedly do their part.  Personal injury cases are medically driven and if a client doesn’t keep their doctors’ appointments, it will look like their injury isn’t that serious and the insurance company could use that against them.   As a part of our intake process here at the Brooks Law Group, we have our clients initial and sign a Lengthy Process Agreement, where the client agrees to keep their appointments with doctors and treat regularly.  This is important and falls right into the next stage because, without a doctor saying that our client has reached their maximum medical improvement, we will not be able to send a demand letter to the insurance company/companies.   In my next post, I will be talking about stage four in a personal injury claim negotiating with the Insurance Company/Companies (The Demand).
