They will likely argue that anything that falls within the realm of diagnosing your injury is diagnostic, including: 
  • ambulance transport to the hospital;
  • emergency room visit;
  • X-rays or other diagnostic tests; and
  •  even appointments with a specialist. 
They will typically leave all of the other medical bills as “treatment” as a means of reducing the amount they will pay out. Things like: 
  • costs of hospital visits;
  • costs of doctor visits;
  • medication; and
  • physical therapy.  

An adjuster may try to say that the bills that fall under “treatment” are the items that actually relate to your injury and are what determine your pain and suffering. 

This is where a Newnan personal injury lawyer can negotiate with the insurance adjusters on your behalf to fight for the compensation that you deserve. 

They will demonstrate that all of your medical bills are related to one another: each area complements the other because a doctor can’t treat your injuries without first discovering the extent of the injury through proper diagnostic procedures. One is useless without the other!
