If you’ve been injured in an accident, whether it be in a car accident or slip and fall, your attorney will be asking a lot of questions of you and anyone else involved. But that also means your treating doctor will be asked questions as well regarding your medical condition and treatment after the accident.
Personal injury lawsuits are medically driven. This means that the most important information needed for the case is how you were injured and how those injuries are affecting your life. How has your life been changed due to your suffering?
An important part in proving your claim is having your doctor testify on your behalf. Your treating doctor can explain how the accident has caused you serious trouble and how your everyday life is no longer the same. The doctor will answer questions about his education, medical background, and schooling. Along with that, the doctor shares information about how the accident caused your injuries, how they are treating you, and what long term damage you may suffer. These questions will help give the jury a picture of just how the accident happened and how your injuries were caused.
