One of the main ways in which a person can hurt their injury case is by missing multiple doctor appointments, as these missing appointment will be noted in the medical records.
Getting proper and needed medical treatment should be the goal of anyone who is injured.
When a patient has multiple missed doctor appointments, if the patient does attempt to sue their doctor for a medical injury or misdiagnosis, the doctor is going to more than likely argue that the patient contributed to their own injuries by missing medical appointments.
Can’t you hear the doctor now?
Patient X contributed to his or her own injuries because he or she never followed up so we could perform a timely biopsy.
In a Maryland medical malpractice trial, a patient’s medical records and the doctor’s actions or in-actions are relevant to the case.
For those who have to miss a doctor’s appointment be sure to reschedule and make up the appointment as soon as possible.
