When a person becomes the victim of an auto accident or a premise case their world is turned upside. As car accident attorneys, we get calls every day from those in Tampa, Lakeland and Winter Haven from people who’ve had this happen.
They are hurt, their pain is intensifying, and none of this is their fault. Many victims have heard the commercials and announcements stating they must seek treatment within 14 days.
Sometimes Your Doctor Can’t Help After a Car Accident
Many people’s first call is to their Primary Care Physician (PCP). They are shocked many times to find out that their PCP will not see or treat them for their injuries.
Other than Emergency Room Physicians, doctors have no legal duty to treat you or anyone else. Your PCP does not care that you have been a loyal patient and have a developed relationship. They won’t see you or any other victim of an auto accident or slip and fall.
Many doctors fear the threat of litigation, getting deposed, or do not want to deal with third party insurance billing, and therefore, turn away all victims of negligence. Victims need direction and a doctor to help them heal, so what should you do?
