As a Florida car crash law firm we represent hundreds of car crash victims every year. One of the most frequent “mistakes” I see claimants make, is where they treat for their injuries. Most rely on their attorney’s recommendations, even when they have had long standing relationships with primary care doctors.
I am very involved with the selection of my clients’ treating physicians and making sure they see the appropriate specialists for their injuries. However, I believe that not involving the injured’s primary care physician can be a very big mistake for the clients well-being and for their case.
If you have been in Florida car wreck and you are pursuing a legal claim, I suggest you advise your primary care doctor and make sure the physician is working with your “accident attorneys” in a team approach. The team should exchange records and coordinate a treatment plan to maximize the patients recovery and prognosis.
