Personal Injury: If I had a previous injury, should I disclose this information to my doctor?

By: Tom DeLattre

Personal InjuryIn many personal injury cases, our injured clients may find themselves dealing with resistance of claim payment from an insurance company. This can be due solely to a previous injury that occured in the past that the insurance company would like to lay the blame on.  Even though this can happen, it is still  best to disclose all past injuries to your doctor. By doing so, you are tending to all potential future issues that could arise from your current injury. Also, by disclosing medical information that includes past injuries, you aid in proving your story’s credibility and value.

Navigating issues like these is best done by a skilled attorney fluent in personal injury claims. It is not recommended to sort through these issues alone. If you have any  questions about this topic or any other personal injury matters, please call us at 407-841-7699.

I can’t thank you enough for all you have done to help Kim and I through all the suffering and hard times. Thank you for being there and helping me with all my emotions. I have learned a lot from you and will dearly miss talking to you. You are a strong and brilliant person and know “the law.” I’m so happy we had you on our side for all those years (2003-2016). I will never forget you. God bless you and we will pass on more clients to you.

These guys deserve their good reputation. They really maintain their focus on their area of expertise. They stick with you as long as needed and they really know their way around your case. It was very nice to work with them and I believe they’ll do just as great a job for anyone else.
