How Should I Record My Medical Bills?

How Should I Record My Medical Bills?

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people who have been injured in an accident do not understand how important it is to keep complete and accurate track of their medical bills.  Your Charlotte medical malpractice attorney will need your full records to get you the best deal possible.  You should, at a minimum, take the following steps:

  1. Get a bill every time you go to a doctor, hospital, or other medical facility.  This includes less traditional medical treatments, such as a physical therapist.
  2. Keep all of your prescription bills for medication related to your injury.
  3. Put together a chart that tracks your medical bills and medication purchases along with the dates for each.  You should know how much was paid and by whom (i.e., by you, your insurance, or your employer).
  4. Give a copy of all bills that are related to your injury or recovery to your Charlotte medical malpractice attorney.  This is important to ensure you receive the highest amount of compensation possible.
  5. Even if your bills are paid for by health insurance or your employer, keep a record.  The more information you have to personally give to your lawyer, the better your settlement will likely be.
