Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video how lawyer-to-doctor referrals can hurt your case
Tyson Mutrux: Hi, Tyson Mutrux with the Mutrux Law Firm. Today I’m discussing lawyer-to-doctor referrals and how they can harm your case. If you go to a personal injury attorney and they want to refer you to one of their doctor friends or someone that they deal with on a regular basis, kindly refuse that referral. The reason why that is is your case goes to trial right on down the road, even though there’s case law on Missouri that says that probably should not come in, there’s a chance that that actually may come in an evidence and a jury might hear that. And if they hear there’s that relationship between the attorney and the doctor, they may held that against you and that’s not fair to you.
So if that does happen to you, just kindly ask your attorney and say, “Can you give me a list of potential doctors that I could go to,” or ask family or friends. That’s a much better way of going about getting the treatment you need.
If you have any questions about that, give us a call at 888-550-4026 or check us out at MutruxLaw.com. Thanks for watching and have a great day.
