Hello Everyone. This is Jim Parish with the Parish law firm. Today I would like to answer the question “how important is it that I follow my Doctors advice, when I’m treating for an injury that was caused by an accident?”
The answer is very simple. It’s VERY important that you follow your doctor’s advice. When I used to work for insurance companies, there was nothing I liked better than reading medical records which included information that the person who is injured was not doing what the doctor said to do in order to get better. Also, if your case ever goes in front of a jury, then a jury is not going to want to hear that you did not follow your doctor’s orders. So always remember advice that your mom gave you when you were a little kid, do what your doctor says, and it’ll help your case. Thank you. I hope that’s helpful.
