How orange county personal injury claims are impacted by medical care
It should come as no surprise to anyone that a personal injury claim is going to be impacted (significantly so) by the kind of medical care in individual requires because of that injury in the first place.
After all, personal injury claims are going to revolve around the injury itself and the medical care necessary to get you back to “better than brand-new” – and insurance companies are going to be looking very, very closely at that number. This is the number that they are going to have to pay out according to your insurance policy, anyway), so they’re going to be zeroing in on these figures with a magnifying glass.
This is why it is so critically important to make sure that you have access to (and as many copies of) your medical records as reasonably possible. Your medical records are going to be used throughout the personal injury claim process to act as “proof positive” to insurance companies that the injury is as severe as it was stated to be, that the money they are paying out is going directly to medical care plan that an individual isn’t committing insurance fraud.
Of course, insurance companies are always going to be looking for ways to reduce the amount of money that they end up having to pay out of personal injury claims. It’s just the nature of the business. They are going to look over absolutely every single medical records provided with a fine tooth comb to look for anything out of the ordinary, they are going to research the entire process as much as possible, and they are going to use the full weight of their business and its history to adjust claims on the fly.
