We recommend that all of our clients follow their Doctor’s advice. Unfortunately, some do not. People miss their doctor’s visits for a variety of reasons such as inability to afford medical care, taking care of children, fear of losing a job, lack of transportation because a car was damaged in the accident, and for many other reasons. The Insurance defense lawyer may try to point out missed medical visits. But, a few missed visits does not prove you were not injured any more than delaying a trip to the mechanic means your car is not broken.
