- Tips When Visiting Doctors After a Car Accident
After a car accident, especially if you are in a lot of pain, you likely want to get in and out of the doctor’s office and back home where you are able to rest. But during the rush of everything that happens after an accident – talking with the police and other parties involved – it can be difficult to remember just what to do when dealing with doctors after an accident.
If you have been injured in a car accident, the skilled auto accident attorneys at Phillips Law in Utah, California, Arizona and New Mexico can help you navigate the complex world of getting compensation for your injuries.

There are several things to keep in mind when visiting the doctor after an accident.
First and foremost, do not delay medical treatment. Even if you don’t think you are injured, you should see a doctor. Injuries can often manifest under the surface and the more time than lapses between the accident and when you seek medical treatment, the more leeway insurance companies have in denying or diminishing your claim.
While your doctor means well, when he or she offers legal advice, remember that your doctor is not your lawyer. It’s important to listen to their medical advice, but leave the legal advice to your lawyer.
If your doctor says you may miss time from work, be sure he or she knows what you do for a living. Someone who works in an office can usually go back to work sooner than someone who operates heavy machinery or works construction.
Even when you feel better, keep up with your appointments. It is important to continue treatment even when you think you may be healed. Doctors know best, and if they recommend four weeks of treatment, do not quit after two.
Insurance companies look for records. It’s important to keep your own records from the doctor’s office to double check or correct mistakes.

Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Phillips law group is the best around!

Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
