If you have suffered injuries after an accident, you may be wondering what your legal rights are and if you are entitled to medical benefits. Those who have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident may be entitled to up to $10,000 in medical benefits.

An attorney may be able to help you obtain the benefits you need to get your life back on track. Unfortunately, not all cases are settled outside of a courtroom. If you are receiving treatment from a doctor with ChiroCare of Florida, they may also serve as a medical expert witness on your behalf.

If you were recently injured, ChiroCare of Florida’s car accident doctors can help you get started with treatment. Your first visit will entail a thorough examination and imaging tests to conclude what injuries occurred during the accident.

What is a Medical Expert Witness?

A medical expert witness is used in a personal injury case to strengthen your injury claim. Your treating physician will be the “medical expert” in your case and will explain the following:

The impact on your quality of life will help to determine the pain and suffering you have endured as a result of these injuries.

How Medical Legal Consulting Can Help Your Claim

Medical expert witnesses can explain why you need the maximum amount of medical benefits, or why you need more. If you have been receiving medical treatment and continue to suffer from pain or have not experienced much progress in rehabilitation, you may need extended treatment.

Your lawyer will work to get this extended treatment covered under your medical benefits. Medical legal consulting can step in to explain why you need the additional treatment and how much longer you would need to continue receiving treatment.

Unfortunately, telling a jury you are in pain is not enough in proving how the injuries are affecting your life. Without the help of a medical expert witness, the opposing side may distort your medical records and argue that you are not as injured as you claim.

Seeking medical treatment after an accident is important in immediately establishing your injuries and the need for care.

ChiroCare of Florida can provide you and your loved ones with the chiropractic care after an accident. Using customized techniques, you will have the best possible chance to heal your injuries and prevent further pain.
