Maintaining Medical Records
One of the things that a court might want to see is a record of your medical bills? There are some tips to keep in mind so that they are properly recorded and maintained.
When you go to your primary doctor or any other healthcare facility, ask for a copy of the bill, even if you ask that it be mailed to you. Keep track of all of the visits that you have through the year by writing them on a calendar. If you take any kind of prescriptions, keep a copy from the pharmacy of when they are filled and the price of each item. This is important if you are taking medications specifically for the injury that you received.
A chart is a good way to keep everything organized. Make columns for dates of doctor’s visits, prices of the medications and the cost of the medical visit. This can serve as the record that you keep for the bills that you acquire due to your medical injury. Make copies of all of this information for the attorney so that he can present it to the court. If the amounts are less than what they bills the attorney receives shows, then it could affect the amount you receive in compensation, so it’s important to maintain proper records and have the original bill or a copy in your file.
