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 hired Mr. Al Hilado early February 2015 to pursue helping me apply for Social Security Disability benefits when I became disabled and was unable to continue workng. He has been very personable and professional. He told me how long it could take for the process and provided detailed information on what to expect. He was always available to take my calls or answer my emails. He was very supportive every step of the way and 3 months later in May I was approved for my disability. Without his help I’m sure I would still be fighting for my benefits instead of receiving my disability checks. I highly recommend Alfred Hilado.
