One of the Five Deadly Sins--the Lawyer Refers the Client to a Doctor
Some folks don't really believe us when we write, in Five Deadly Sins That Can Wreck Your Virginia Car Accident Case, that getting a referal from your lawyer to your doctor is a bad thing.
It was for a plaintiff in a recent Virginia case involving a car wreck.
The judge found that the lawyer made the referal and then later failed to file the correct report with the court.
The judge would not let the doctor testify.
That's really bad news.
