When an injured person is undergoing medical care, it is very important to discuss with the doctor the current treatment plan and the doctor’s opinions about returning to work. The paperwork the doctor fills out addressing these issues must be taken from the appointment by the patient. The employer, your attorney and the insurance adjuster need this paper as it tells everyone currently what’s going on with medical care and employment status.
We have two other videos that go along with this topic.
