Consulting Dr. Google Does Not Help Auto Accident Claim
In today’s world, where health insurance is expensive and does not provide the benefits it used to provide, many people are avoiding medical treatment and go to google and search their condition to find out available treatment options. I have had a client that did this when she fractured her wrist. You need a medical professional to see your actual injury in order to be able to properly advise you regarding treatment. Also, you need a medical professional to document your injury and treatment so that you can be fairly compensated for it. If your injury and treatment are not documented, then you can expect little compensation from the at-fault insurance company. It is not a wise decision to consult Dr. Google when seeking advice on medical treatment and it will not help your car accident claim.
Some clients in Kentucky consult Dr. Google because they are not aware of the fact that they are entitled to $10,000.00 of medical insurance through the car they occupied at the time of the accident. Even if the car is not insured, the $10,000.00 in PIP insurance may still be available to the car accident victim. It is important to consult with a car accident attorney after an accident so that you are aware of all your options and most auto accident lawyers will provide this advice free of charge.
