It’s okay to be frugal, but some things you just don’t skimp on. What that something is varies from person to person. For instance, skydivers shouldn’t skimp on their parachute, or it might be the last mistake they ever make. In the same way, accident victims shouldn’t skimp on the medical treatment they receive during their recovery. Whether missing doctors’ appointments or passing on therapy sessions, foregoing necessary treatment is never a good idea, and it could cost you a lot more than a speedy recovery.
If you’ve been injured in an accident and have an outstanding injury claim with the insurance company, you can bet that they are tracking your medical treatment. If you continuously miss appointments or fail to show up at physical therapy sessions, they probably know about and can use that information to attempt to prove that you aren’t as injured as you claim. After all, if you don’t need to go to the doctor, why should they pay you for your “so-called” injuries?
Don’t make that mistake. You need all the medical treatment that your doctor recommends.
