I was not sure where to go with this case. My client was receiving treatment for wrist pain prior to her accident. Her orthopedic surgeon recommended surgery; however, my client chose not to pursue this recommendation as she could not afford to lose time from work. Following the accident, she tried to continue to work as a florist but due to increased pain, she relented and decided to stop working and have the recommended surgery.

Before I proceeded with expensive litigation, I requested a file review by AdvancedRM. Their medical expert guided me and assisted in developing a plan to prove changes in my client’s functional status following the accident. The cost was minimal and they helped me to obtain strong documentation from of her work responsibilities and performance pre and post-accident.  Taking this approach helped me to win my case for my client. Working with an experienced medical/legal review professional saved me time and money. I will use them on all of my complicated medical cases in the future.
