What’s the responsibility of the client? It’s your obligation to ensure you check-in with your physician in the event that you’ve suffered injury. Keep records of what the doctors tell you, and follow their treatment plan which may include physical therapies. Important to maintain an excellent report.
As well, pay attention to what the lawyer says. Make sure to have all your documentation of your injury, accident as well as medical treatments, so that you are able to provide lawyers with all the necessary information to efficiently handle your case.
In the end, how much is your claim worth? It’s impossible to determine this at the start of your case. It will be answered if medical expenses or the effect on your daily activities (such like missed work) are considered.
