What should I tell my doctor about my car wreck?

If you are injured in a car wreck and seek medical care, you should tell your doctor, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. 

Let your doctor know how you were hurt and be completely honest with him regarding your injuries. 

That means:

  1. Tell him about every pain and problem, even if you think it is minor. If you don't report it when it first bothers you, it is hard to get the treatment paid for in the future.
  2. Tell him about your medical history and make sure you let him know of any pre-existing problems you had prior to the wreck. If you don't, the insurance company will argue you tried to mislead your doctor.
  3. Do exactly what he/she tells you to do and make every appointment. If you don't, the insurance company will argue you must not have been hurt because you didn't go to your doctor.
