Whether you were hurt in a motor vehicle collision, or injured when a piece of equipment malfunctioned or harmed by a defective product, you may have a case for a personal injury claim.  Unfortunately, to obtain fair compensation, you may have to engage with inflexible and unreasonable insurance corporations. Whenever you are trying to collect from an insurance company after an auto accident, or suing the manufacturer of a faulty product, having a qualified accident attorney is the best way to help secure the full and fair compensation you deserve.

If your injury was caused by the wrongful actions or negligence of someone else, we can help you build a strong and persuasive case. The legal team at West, Longenbaugh, and Zickerman will aggressively negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf for compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and long-term needs.

We Are on Your Side

Personal injury cases can be complex and overwhelming. There is an enormous amount of red tape and the fight for justice usually involves going against large, bureaucratic insurance companies who demand a mountain of paperwork, including your medical records.

At West, Longenbaugh, and Zickerman, our expert attorneys will help you:

  • Gather evidence to prove liability for the incident
  • Find proper medical care and compassionate doctors
  • Obtain payment for current and future healthcare costs
  • Interact and provide only the proper medical records to insurance companies to protect your rights
  • Recover full and fair compensation

Medical Records are Evidence

Medical evidence is the foundation for all personal injury incidents and can make or break a case. When someone has been injured by the negligence of another person, it is important to have a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer review all medical records to determine financial compensation.

The medical records relating to a personal injury claim can help prove a case. For example, releasing medical documents:

  • Provides undeniable proof of the physical injuries incurred
  • Allows for calculating damages sustained by the injured person
  • Permits a medical expert to analyze the records to determine the cause of the injuries

Common types of medical records used as evidence in personal injury cases include:

  • Emergency room records
  • Doctor's notes
  • Doctor's diagnosis
  • Doctor's recommended treatment
  • Description pain during treatment
  • Required future medical treatments
  • Medical bills
  • Estimated future medical bills

The legal system considers medical records one of the strongest forms of evidence in your injury claim. These records provide an accurate picture of how the injuries affect your life, now and in the future. It is essential that you work closely with a qualified attorney when releasing your medical paperwork to any insurance company since the documents provide proof of your injuries. The manner in which these files are handled may determine your level of compensation.
