REFERRALS TO MEDICAL CARE PROVIDERS FROM PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS

Posted by Ben Sessions | Mar 18, 2016 | 0 Comments

Be very cautious about referrals to medical care providers from personal injury attorneys. It is critical that you receive medical care that you need following any accident. However, the validity of any claim for compensation that you make following an accident can be compromised, in whole or part, based upon the type of medical care that you receive and how you arrived at that provider.

TOO CLOSE OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS AND MEDICAL CARE PROVIDERS IS NOT NECESSARILY A GOOD THING

Many people mistakenly believe that the closer that doctors and lawyers are, the better it is for their personal injury case. The problem with this sort of view is that it disregards the fact that medical care and expenses will be viewed skeptically by an insurer at some later time. How you arrive a particular medical care provider will be reviewed by an insurer, and they will examine the relationship between a lawyer and a medical care provider. If you arrive at a care provider through your lawyer, one of the issues that will be raised by the insurer is that “this is all an effort by the personal injury lawyer and the plaintiff to create expenses and a case”. The point is this: Your care medical care needs to occur organically/naturally.

Many personal injury lawyers overlook these concerns at the outset of the case. They forget that small mistakes at the beginning of a case can have a significant impact on the balance of the case. The devil is truly in the details, and it is important that your personal injury attorney understands the impact that his/her direction can have on your case and the ultimate recovery that you obtain from the case.
