Do I Have To Keep Going To The Same Doctor Just So The Insurance Company Will Believe Me? I’m Not Getting Better.

Your choice of doctors should always be controlled by concern for your health.

If you are not getting better, you should do whatever you think you have to do to get better. If this means changing doctors, you should do it.

A problem that can happen is that the insurance company can accuse you of “doctor shopping”, or changing doctors to hide earlier injuries. So if you think you have a good doctor, it makes sense to stick with him.

Some doctors are good at treating patients, but are not especially effective as witnesses.

And some doctors – particularly specialists – are reluctant to give professional opinions as to their patient’s recovery and ability to perform certain tasks. They say – and they are sincere – that their job is not to perform evaluations for lawsuits, but to treat patients.

In either situation, I might recommend an examination and records review by a doctor retained specifically for this purpose. This can be expensive, but it can be very helpful.

I have been a lawyer over 30 years. I do whatever I can to help my clients – but this usually does not involve making health care recommendations. If you’ve been injured in an accident, talk with an experienced Cincinnati Injury Lawyer 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.
