It is the goal of both your doctor and our office that our clients get well and recover. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you are in a two-lane road to recovery both physically and financially. The primary concern to be your physical recovery for your injuries sustained in the motorcycle accident. The choice of your doctor, medical team and the management of your medical care play a large part in your physical recovery for your motorcycle injuries. You must follow your doctor’s advice and recommendations and take all prescribed medicine as indicated. Remember, through every step of managing your medical recovery, you are the ultimate manager who must assume the primary responsibility for your healthful recuperation, recovery and getting back on your feet.
We also recommend that the client mitigate their damage and get back to work as soon as possible. As stated previously, we represent people that cope, not whine. If the doctor places you on a work restriction or places you off work, you are entitled to take time off from work. However, if you can return to work, we recommend that you do return to work.
You must manage your physical aspect of your recovery as well as your financial management of your recovery so that it does not interfere with your life and your ability to pay your financial obligations. With a balanced approach to healthcare and financial management, you can manage your physical and financial recovery from a devastating motorcycle accident.
In the real world, there may be complications with your doctors and employers. Your doctor may have no incentive to provide timely medical reports and bills for you to present your motorcycle injury claim and your employer may be unreasonable and even terminate you if you are involved in an accident and do not return to work.
It is difficult to coordinate the varying aspects needed to present a motorcycle injury claim. An experienced law firm with a support staff that specializes in motorcycle injury law can obtain all the appropriate medical records, bills, reports, insurance company EOBs and other documents needed to provide a settlement evaluation and demand in your claim.
Many times, our motorcycle injury clients are on crutches, in a wheelchair or bedridden for days if not weeks. They are unable to do the management of their physical recovery and financial recovery at the same time. Only the client or patient can advise us as to whether they can do all these tasks simultaneously. This multi-tasking of getting well and getting financially back on your feet is difficult depending on the extent of your injuries. For example, if you are a spinal cord injury victim or have a fractured leg or broken arm and are unable to return to work, it will be difficult if not impossible for you to make ends meet as well as while you are trying to follow the doctor’s advice and orders and get well with your physical recovery. If you are having difficulty physically, financially or mentally, it may be an appropriate time to seek professional help by calling a motorcycle accident lawyer.
If you choose to hire a motorcycle accident attorney to assist you in managing your recovery and your case, your attorney will assume most of the important duties of managing your medical care, obtaining your medical records, obtaining your billing and wage loss documents and presenting your settlement evaluation and demand in your motorcycle accident claim. A full time professional may be needed in your case to assist you so that you can concentrate on your comprehensive medical management and, in plain language “getting well.” Together, a team with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer and cooperative client can work together to reach the goal of physical and financial recovery.
