How Do I Know What Doctor To Call?

If you have a good relationship with your family doctor, call him or her.

If you don’ t have a family doctor, go to the emergency room.

If you don’t have insurance, go to any doctor who will see you on credit.

I try to avoid recommending doctors to my clients, even though I can usually suggest several who I think would be good.

Why don’t I usually recommend doctors? Because in virtually every deposition, I see the insurance lawyer ask my client “How did you come to see Dr. X? Did a friend recommend him? Did your LAWYER recommend Dr. X?”

And some damage is done if I did. Because if the insurance lawyer gets a chance, he’ll ask the jury to consider: “Why is a lawyer recommending a doctor?” The implication is that there is a “deal”, or a “pipeline” between the doctor and the lawyer.

And when you get right down to it, doctors know doctors better than lawyers do. So ask your doctor.

I have been a lawyer over 30 years. You probably know enough doctors to find the right one. If you need help, ask, and I can tell you what I know. If you’ve been injured in an accident, talk with an experienced Cincinnati Personal Injury Attorney about the case. Call me, William Strubbe, at 513-621-4775.

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.
