At Allen Flatt Ballidis and Leslie, a personal injury law firm located in Newport Beach, CA, we were recently referred a female client who had been injured in a motor vehicle accident, and who had a long history of back issues.
Following her accident, our client contacted her physician to set up an appointment and they refused to see her since her increased back pain was due to a motor vehicle accident. Having received zero support from her own doctor who she turned to, she then contacted another physician and omitted telling them that her back injury was related to her accident. This second physician, and many others who treated our client along the way, recommended she have a very necessary back surgery. On a related note and during the last several years, our attorneys are finding these types of situations are becoming more common in the medical field, considering many physicians no longer want to “be involved” in medical legal cases.
