Today I’m going to answer the question that a lot of people ask me when they come into see me, which is, “Can you refer me to a doctor for my treatment?”
Well, a lot of lawyers will refer you to a certain doctor for your treatment. However, that’s something we here at Premier Law Group won’t do. (I talk about this in my book, The Truth About Washington Auto Accidents.) The reason for this is that insurance companies keep vast databases and they know when a certain lawyer is working on a case with a certain doctor again and again. If the insurance company sees that pattern, then it will affect the value of your case, because they know that this is probably some sort of collusion between the lawyer and the doctor.
In our office, we don’t make any referrals to certain providers. We think that your treatment is best handled by you and making sure that you treat with the doctors that you are most comfortable with and the ones that are convenient for you to go to. In order to best represent clients and get the maximum value that we can for you, we do not refer our clients to any doctors.
