Yes, gaps in treatment after an auto accident can be devastating to your claim. Insurance companies and defense lawyers love it when you miss appointments; they will say that you must not have been hurt too badly or else you would have gone to all of your appointments and kept up with your treatments.

Missing your appointments because of financial issues is also a problem because those types of issues cannot be brought up in a trial.

One more thing – if you find that you are feeling better, don't stop your treatments. Follow your doctor’s orders and recommended treatment plan all the way through or you may cause problems with your injury claim.
