Why won’t my primary doctor treat me after a car accident?
Many primary care doctors have made a conscious decision not to treat auto injuries for several reasons. Some are not set up to submit their bills to auto insurers, which is different than submitting to health insurance; some do not want to be involved in the medical care of a patient that might ask them to later testify at trial; and some don’t want to deal with law firms and their regular requests for medical bills and records. Whatever the reason, if your doctor won’t see you for injuries as a result of an automobile accident, there are others that will. Attorneys with the Ruth Law Team can assist you in locating health care providers that are able to help with your treatment and that are comfortable treating auto-related injuries.
