Activity Monitors And Claim Evidence
Wearable technology has become more and more popular. From smartwatches to physical fitness monitors, people wear software that tracks the amount of steps they take and if they are getting enough sleep each night. While this data is collected for an individual’s health goals and awareness, there are situations in which the information can be used to support the need for damage recovery.
It is common to be confused and overwhelmed after an injury, if you have questions about how to access a maximum settlement amount after an accident in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, connect with a qualified Bucks County personal injury attorney. There may be sources of evidence you have never considered, including the data collected by your smartwatch or activity monitor.
Sleep Patterns and Pain Levels
If you are seeking financial recovery for pain and suffering in addition to compensation for medical expenses, it is possible an insurance company will try to deny or reduce the amount you are requesting, arguing your pain level is not as high as you are saying it is. While it’s true that it can be difficult to prove how much pain a person is experiencing, there are paths to solid evidence.
For example, if someone is in pain, they may not be able to sleep because of their discomfort and suffering. This lack of sleep could be recorded on an activity tracker. This evidence can be even more compelling when it is possible to contrast how well the person was able to sleep before the accident injury with sleep disruptions after the injurious event.
Talk to an Attorney About Your Medical Data
There are many ways technology can interface with other data records. It is possible your insurance company has access to some of the information on your activity tracker, for example. Some health insurance plans have incentives for customers to use these types of products, such as companies offering bonuses for averaging a certain level of steps each month.
