Do I have to go to the insurance company's doctor before undergoing surgery?
Periodically our clients are compelled to undergo surgery as a result of vehicle accident injuries. Increasingly insurance companies are pushing for crash victims to see their doctor before surgery. Clark and Steinhorn, LLC take the position that crash victims have no obligation to see the doctor of the insurance company whatsoever. If a case is in litigation the at fault driver can through his or her attorney seek an examination by a physician of their choosing but even that exam can be resisted or constrained.
