When you are treating with your doctor, your appointments should be consistent until you are discharged. Sometimes people take breaks in treatments and miss doctor appointments. Some don’t want to take time from work. Others skip because they get busy with holidays, life or just can’t be bothered with treating consistently. These gaps affect the value of your case. The problem here is that your medical records are reviewed by the insurance companies before any compensation is offered to you. Any gaps in treatment give the impression that you were not really injured and didn’t take your treatments seriously, thereby reducing the value of your claim.
