Must the injured see his primary physician before going to an orthopedics after a motor vehicle accident?
January 12, 2015
After a motor vehicle accident the injured did not see his primary physician but directly went to an orthopedic doctor. When he consult lawyers, they all ask whether he has seen his primary physician. Can you explain why lawyers want to ask whether the injured has visited his primary physician? Is there any problem if the injured did not see his primary physician but orthopedics after the MVA? Thank you.
It's not a problem. Some people don't have primary care physicians. The simple reason is that they will want to obtain a copy of the records from every Dr. seen by the client following the accident.
