– from Melissa I. in Whitefish Bay, WI
I hurt my wrist after falling at a nearby store, and now my doctor wants me to see a specialist. I haven't hired an attorney but I'm thinking about it. Should I wait to see the specialist until I talk to a lawyer?
Personal Injury Lawyer Response:
Any experienced personal injury lawyer will tell you not to wait. Your health and well-being is the most important consideration at this point, and you shouldn't delay any recommended medical treatments.
In addition, if you decide to pursue a personal injury claim against the store, you'll need to know the extent of your injury — something best accomplished by following-through with your doctor's recommendations. This will help you better determine the true cost of your recovery.
Once your immediate medical concerns are addressed, however, don't wait to contact an attorney. Feel free to give us a call or complete the form for a free consultation. “
