We have all seen the commercials about the importance of hiring a lawyer after an accident to protect your interests. The personal injury lawyers at Warnett Hallen LLP would agree, hiring a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident is very important. However, seeking medical treatment and attending continued care after an accident is the best thing you can do for your health.
Process of Recovery
If you have been injured in an accident, your family doctor will be the main source of treatment, diagnostic assessments and referrals to specialists or therapy such as massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, active rehabilitation programs, etc.. Attending your doctor on a regular basis is the most important thing you can do for recovery from an injury. Your family doctor serves as the primary contact for your treatment plan and should ensure you are receiving the best care possible. It is imperative that you not only attend all treatment recommended by your family doctor but also seek it out if pain and functional limitations persist as the result of an injury.
Cost of Recovery
Treatment recommended by your family doctor can be expensive. This is especially so if the injury keeps you away from the workforce and unable to earn an income. If you do not have access to extended health benefits and ICBC is the only insurance available, treatments costs can add-up. ICBC may only pay for a portion of treatment and your treatment provider may charge a user fee after each treatment. In some cases, ICBC may not agree to fund the treatment or medical equipment recommended.
Helping to Facilitate Treatment
The personal injury lawyers at Warnett Hallen LLP are here to guide you through the process. We ensure you can access the treatment recommended by your family doctor. If funding for treatment is an issue, we can assist with treatment costs or arrange an agreement with the treatment provider to defer costs. We work with your family doctor and have access to a team of medical experts to ensure the best treatment possible.
Once your injuries have completely healed or plateaued and the personal injury lawyers at Warnett Hallen have confirmation of this from your family doctor and other medical experts, we can begin the process of maximizing your injury claim and determining what your compensation should be.
