Narrative Medical Reports to Settle Personal Injury Claims
A narrative medical report
is a letter format discussion of all or part of your medical record. But it
can also be a specific essay written by the doctor on one topic, dealing,
for example, solely with the issue of whether or not the patient will have
the expectation of pain and suffering in the future. There are, of course,
many specifics that can help you use your doctor's narrative report as a
tool for getting the settlement you deserve.
Most attorneys and claimants do not use narrative
reports because they think the medical aspects are adequately covered in
the medical records. On the contrary, insurance adjusters tell us
they would like to see a well-developed medical history and treatment
narrative, as opposed to a collection of handwritten chart notes and even
typed office notes. The adjuster will wade through the latter, but she is
more likely to give greater weight to something she can more easily
understand and access for information. Hence, she will be more likely to
read and digest narrative reports because the doctor has eliminated some of
the work she would be required to do in reading notes by putting together
something that is easy to read and understand. The result will be a
higher award for the claimant who invested in a narrative report.
