One of the most important things for you to do is to keep an accurate record of your medical bills.
Be sure that your lawyer receives a copy of all of your medical bills as well as a summary for each when the case is ready for settlement. Even though your lawyer may receive copies of bills directly from the medical facilities, this double-check process will help ensure that your claim settles for the maximum value. If your lawyer does not have a record of all of your medical bills, your case may be settled for less than its actual value.
Keep a record of medical bills even if they are processed through a health insurance carrier. Even if a health insurance company or your employer pays your medical bills, you must still maintain copies.
