Medical evidence is widely used in car accident claims to help prove the extent of injuries to insurance companies. Doctor’s notes, hospital records, assessments, CAT scans, MRIs, x-rays, and other imaging tests can all be used to build a strong case and ensure that you receive a fair settlement for any injuries you may have faced as a result of someone else’s negligence.

You should seek medical attention right after an accident so that you can prevent an insurer from arguing that your injuries were not related to the accident. Additionally, you should save any receipts or documents related to the costs of medical treatments and recovery for your injuries, including doctor’s visits, assistive devices such as wheelchairs, travel costs for appointments, and over-the-counter and prescription medications.

If you have been injured in an auto accident, you should seek the help of an experienced Chicago accident attorney at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. The earlier we start gathering medical evidence, the more likely you are to recover full compensation for your injuries.
