Suffering an injury in a car or other type of accident is a traumatic experience. However, it is vital that you not only trust your doctor, but feel comfortable enough to ask them questions. Depending on your condition and circumstances, you may want to ask them the following:

  • I am concerned about my injury. What should I do? Make sure you raise any concerns you have about your injuries. For example, ask if there are any side effects that you should be aware of that are not immediately obvious. You may also want to ask about what activities you are or are not permitted to do.
  • Given that my injuries are so severe, I will not be able to return to work. Can you provide me with a doctor’s note to show my employer? If your injuries are serious enough to ask for time off, ask your doctor for a doctor’s note so that you can have time to recover. It is important that you request a doctor’s note as soon as possible so that you have additional proof for your legal case.
  • Can you provide me with copies of my medical documentation? If you plan on pursuing a legal claim, it is important that you ask your doctor for copies of your medical records. Additionally, you should provide copies of your medical documentation to your attorney.
  • Can you tell me how likely it is that the accident caused my injuries? After your doctor has assessed your condition, ask them if they think your injuries are consistent with your accident.
  • Will I experience any future problems or long-term effects as a result of the accident? You should also ask your doctor if you will suffer any long-term pain, disability, or discomfort in the future. You may want to ask them to provide you with an approximate timeline of recovery as well.
