Your lawyer is not your doctor

Comments Off

Recently, we had a potential client who asked us whether his son should delay having follow-up care for his injury because it might “help the case.” Our answer to that is the same as every question concerning medical treatment: your doctor is your doctor, Abrams Landau is your law firm.

While suggestions might be made by your attorney or questions might be asked, your first job as an injured person is to get to maximum medical improvement – either get completely healthy or get as healthy as you can. Should you be injured, please do not delay medical treatment due to desire for a better lawsuit. In fact, you will likely only be injuring, rather than helping, your case.
