Ask Your Doctor. If You Don’t Have A Doctor You Trust, Get One.
Why is your doctor the best person to recommend a specialist for injuries you sustain in a truck accident? Because he knows you, he knows the specialists in your area, and he’s neutral.
What if you don’t trust your doctor to recommend a good specialist? For instance, some people in small towns may feel their family doctors are just fine, but don’t feel that they have good options for specialized care near them. Or maybe they just go to their family doctor because they are isolated, and don’t feel like they have much of a choice.
One option is to go to the emergency room of the hospital you feel the best about. In Cincinnati, University Hospital has an Emergency Room staffed by some of the best doctors in Cincinnati – and so do the other large hospitals. They may not all be five star, but you have a better chance of getting good treatment than you would if you walked into a smaller clinic.
If I represent you, you can ask me to recommend a doctor. I am usually reluctant to recommend a doctor, because if the case gets as far as a jury, it will look like steering if my client testifies truthfully that he went to see his doctor because I recommended it.
On the other hand, I really want my patient to trust his doctor. It is almost impossible to resolve his case unless the patient trusts his doctor.
If you live in Northeast Ohio, you may be able to be treated at the Cleveland Clinic. That is an excellent place to find a good doctor.

Because all situations are different, and because there may be other facts pertaining to your case that I don’t know about, you should not rely on this answer for legal advice. I am not your attorney, and no lawyer client relationship has been formed. All discussions are limited to Ohio law unless otherwise indicated. And past performance cannot be used to predict future results.
