As soon as the defense gives you a general denial answer, including a denial of your pleading of medical expenses, do two things:
- 1. Immediately send the defense a nice letter enclosing a medical authorization from your client for them to inspect medical records. (They are going to get it sooner or later, and you may as well give it to them right away, so that step 2 below is justified.)
- 2. Sixty days after you sent out the nice letter with the medical authorization, send out our Request for Admissions Re Medical Expenses.
You will notice that our Request for Admissions re Medical Expense gives the defense attorney notice of the consequences of denial in a way that gets him/her thinking seriously about the game of denying everything you pleaded. If the defense denies your request, the way we have framed it, it becomes a defense personal attack on the medical ethics of the medical providers. If the defense attorney does deny the requests, you can tell the treating doctors that the nasty guy on the other side is questioning their medical ethics and apparently alleging medical over-treatment. Suddenly the doctor is extremely cooperative about appearing at trial to say how badly your client was hurt, and why his patient (your client) had to endure both the injuries and also the expense of treatment.
Requests for Admissions can be powerful. Save preparation time, and still be better prepared. Our Request for Admissions Re Medical Expense is designed by a top trial attorney to get you what you want.
While practicing for the last 35 years, in a successful five state litigation practice, I developed and refined a comprehensive set of litigation forms. They saved me lots of time, and made me more effective for my clients.
A well thought out form gives results in the litigation! That is the benefit of using a DepoForm™ copyrighted form. You get results!
Most attorneys have no real system of developed forms. They waste time, and they get into holes at trial.
But that doesn’t have to be you.
Just think. For a few dollars you get a great idea and format, a well drafted request for the items you need, and a form you can use over and over, case after case. This is certainly a good investment.
