It’s time to see the doctor. But this one is not a friendly treating doctor. This one was hired by the insurance company or a defense lawyer to either terminate your client’s care or say that he wasn’t really injured. This doctor is not on your side.
This video teaches your injured clients about the tricks played by defense doctors in their efforts to call into question your clients’ honesty, prevent them from obtaining the treatment they need, and destroy their insurance claim.
This instructional video is hosted by Karen Koehler (Litigating Minor Impact Soft Tissue Cases), one of the United States’ leading trial lawyers. She will provide clear and simple instructions for your clients about the defense medical examination process and teach them how to avoid the common traps set by insurance doctors.
In this video, Koehler includes tips on:
- Honesty in the history and examination
- How the defense doctor and staff watch for inconsistencies and malingering
- Clients giving their best effort, without getting hurt
This video gives clients examples of the medical history and examination procedures so they know what to expect before they walk into the doctor’s office. It provides your clients with the best chance of being viewed as credible and truly injured after a traumatic incident.
