Can My Personal Injury Attorney Refer Me to a Doctor?

Immediately following an accident, if urgent medical attention is needed, your first phone call should absolutely be to emergency services. Past that, one would think that the next logical point of contact would be your insurance company, but that wouldnโ€™t be the right move.

Before you call your insurance company, you should phone your personal injury attorney and see if you can get them on the scene. They can assess the case, collect information, record details of the incident, as well as refer you to the best doctor for the type of injury you have suffered.

Proceeding a car accident or an injury like a slip and fall, it is advised that you donโ€™t speak to anyone that doesnโ€™t represent you. Your personal injury lawyer and your doctor are the two safest people to speak to following an injury where someone else is at fault.

Both your personal injury attorney and your physician have your best interests at hand. Whereas, anyone who represents another company or entity can easily misrepresent your recollection of events and complicate matters, much to your disadvantage.

Your Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You Find the Best Doctor For Your Injury

An experienced car accident lawyer or personal injury attorney has had years to cultivate long-standing relationships with doctors, surgeons and medical professionals in a wide variety of practice areas. This makes your lawyer uniquely qualified to recommend a doctor that specializes in a specific field of medicine.

Whether you need chiropractic care, reconstructive surgery, physical therapy or are in need of a reputable general care doctor for minor injuries, the personal injury lawyers at Jacob Emrani will know exactly where to tell you to go. You will get the best care for your particular type of injury, without having to play a guessing game on what doctor to contact.

Despite what you may think, not all doctors treat injuries caused by auto accidents or slip and fall injuries. Many general practitioners arenโ€™t well-versed in the complexities of head injuries, shattered bones or spinal injuries.

It is not uncommon for your car accident attorney and/or personal injury lawyer to be very hands-on throughout the medical portion of your case. In fact, since your attorney has extensive experience sorting through information regarding diagnostics like MRIs, CT scans and medical records, by default they are qualified to point out the best path forward depending on the type of injury you have.

It is important that your attorney and doctor maintain a close professional relationship throughout the duration of your car accident or personal injury case. They will be working in unison to share detailed information regarding the severity of your injuries, treatment plan, and any future physical therapy that may be needed.
