One of the worst mistakes that an injured worker can make is not to describe in detail on his or her first visit to the doctor the facts of the accident. It is difficult to prove that you had an injury by accident which caused your need for medical treatment if there are no notes in the history section as to how the injury occurred. The same is true of “body parts.” Every time, especially the first time, you go to the doctor it is important you tell him every body part that has been injured as a result of the work accident. If a body part is not mentioned, it will be cause for the insurance company to deny treatment in the future. For many more tips to protect your medical benefits, order our free book.
