Medical Referrals

Medical Referrals Can Be Risky

People who have been in a car accident face a number of critical decisions. A skilled Tustin car accident lawyer will tell you that some car crash victims are directed toward certain doctors, chiropractors or other medical practitioners. There are times when this is acceptable, but there are also instances when steering clients toward a doctor can jeopardize a client's case. Bisnar | Chase Personal Injury Attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable about the risks involved whith medical referrals.

Of course you should always seek medical attention as soon as possible after a car accident. If you do not have a doctor you can ask co-workers, friends or family members for a referral. If you do not like the one you were sent to, you can always change that later. The most important thing is to address your injuries. Get a medical and police report. Before you take any information to the auto insurance company, please contact a skilled Tustin car accident lawyer.

When It's Acceptable for Lawyers to Refer a Doctor

Seasoned auto accident attorneys know that referring doctors or other medical professionals to their clients walk on thin ice. The mere appearance of impropriety can be a problem if the doctor so recommended ultimately benefits from a trial's outcome. That said, there are instances where lawyers can legitimately recommend a medical professional.

One example would be if a client specifically asks for a recommendation, and if the lawyer has allowed the client to evaluate other payment options and taken prudent steps to prevent the client from signing a medical lien (medical bills to be paid from funds recovered for an injury). At this point, the lawyer has done his duty and allowed the client to choose a doctor without the lawyer's influence.

Another example in which a car accident lawyer may recommend a specific medical professional would be in the case of an expert witness. A lawyer may suggest a certain doctor to serve as a medical expert to explain and clarify specific details of an injury to a judge or jury. Of course, the medical expert so retained should not be allowed to benefit from settlement funds, as his or her testimony would be challenged and jeopardized.
