How Being A Good Client Can Help Your Case

What You Do Can Have A Huge Impact On Your Case.

Many clients feel that the outcome of their case rests solely on the shoulders of their personal injury attorney. It’s true that your attorney’s actions can make or break your case. However, you should know that your actions have just as much weight. Being a good client is an often overlooked, yet critical element in a legal outcome. In this post, we are going to go over two critical medical aspects to help you be a good client.

Avoiding these mistakes can go a long way to getting the result that you want, but there are many proactive things that you can do to help your case. Good clients are much more effective in allowing their personal injury attorney understand exactly what happened in their situation.

  • Get treatment from your regular doctor – Some lawyers will try to send you to a doctor that they know and can control, but unfortunately, insurance companies are very familiar with this strategy. If you get a new lawyer and a new doctor following your injury, it just lo1oks downright suspicious. That is why you should get treated by your regular doctor, and if you do need to see a specialist about your injuries, let your primary doctor give you a referral.
  • Be honest with your doctor about your case – Although your doctor may seem like the ultimate confidant, you need to understand that their job involves writing down everything that you tell them. So don’t embellish about your case or try to fib about your medical history. Your doctor has access to the truth, and lying will only hurt your case. Remember to start at the beginning and walk your doctor through the whole event.
