Providing An Accurate Medical History

by FranksKoenig NeuweltOct 30, 20180 comments

Providing An Accurate Medical History

Providing an accurate medical history is essential when receiving treatment under Florida’s workers’ compensation system. Your work comp insurance company will look to the history you provide when trying to deny you future benefits.Florida’s work comp laws are some of the worst in the country when it comes to a insurance company’s ability to get out of providing you benefits. They look for every opportunity to deny your case. If they can deny your case, they do not have to pay doctors, pharmacies, therapists or your lost wages. Less money being paid out means more money in their pockets. Do not give your workers’ compensation insurance company the opportunity to do this to you.

An accurate medical history can actually save your case if relayed correctly. Giving the information that the insurance company cannot throw back in your face is one of the best ways to secure your claim and your entitlement to benefits under the law.

Medical providers are, for the most part, running from exam room to exam room and have little time to scratch below the surface to dig out your medical history. If you ask them in deposition, the doctors are likely to say that they rely on a truthful and accurate medical history and expect you to provide a full and complete history. However, it is hard to recall what happened ten years ago when you are bent over sideways in pain after falling off a roof or to provide any information when the doctor barely spends three minutes with you before heading out to the next injured worker.

If you have been hurt at work, you need to make sure you are protected from the workers’ compensation insurance company’s ability to close your case. If you have been involved in a workplace accident, don’t wait to go to a workers’ compensation doctor before calling an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
