Ottawa Accident Lawyers Stress the Importance of Your Family Physician in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you have been in a personal injury accident, it is imperative that you visit your family physician regularly until your conditions subside. Your doctor will encourage you to seek the medical attention and treatment needed, assistance to prevent greater impairment and restriction from your injuries, and to help increase the chances of your full recovery. The notes made in your clinical chart will document the complaints made at each date of visit and substantiate the treatment and prognosis for recovery, which is critical for your personal injury lawsuit.

Medical Attention

The first visit to your doctor after your personal injury accident is to have your injuries examined, assessed and documented and to obtain medication and treatment recommendations. Depending on the severity or extent of your injuries, you will be asked to return for a follow up appointment shortly thereafter.
