Snellings Law PLLC Attorneys are Personal Injury Trial Lawyers
The Doctor Won't See You Now
The world seemed less complicated and more reliable back when I was a kid. Parents kept me safe, teachers helped me learn, and the family doctor was always there for bumps, bruises, illness…and lollipops if I behaved. It was a support system that I took for granted.
I’m reminded of this whenever I hear from clients who discover their doctor won’t treat them after an auto accident.
That kind of rejection adds insult to injuries and causes stress at a difficult time. You need to focus on healing, which is why Snellings Law helps take care of everything else…including making sure you have access to excellent medical providers.
Pandemic conditions confirmed the commitment of most in the medical profession, but even dedicated healers can grow reluctant once litigation enters the picture. The worst stories come from patients turned away by family physicians they’ve been seeing for all of their lives.
Why do doctors avoid accident victims?
The short answer is that they just don’t want to get involved.
Longer explanations include complaints about time requirements and office disruptions. When a lawsuit may be involved, doctors worry about answering record requests, giving deposition testimony, dealing with billing complexities and health insurance, or simply operating under the scrutiny of lawyers.
I understand where they are coming from but that doesn’t help the victim.
Helping the victim is why we are personal injury lawyers.
