These medical records document how you are feeling on a day-to-day basis and may become quite extensive including multiple doctors, physical therapists and assistants. These documents will include MRI reports, various diagnostic results and laboratory findings.
Look through your medical records from time to time to ensure that the doctors who are treating you have taken accurate notes. This helps to ensure that your records are correct and that you receive appropriate medical treatment. If you find inconsistencies in your records then you want to correct them as soon as possible. A sing incorrect notation can change the insurance company’s evaluation of a case. Talk to a personal injury lawyer to find out how you can request your medical records.
