Stuart, FL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
Florida-based Personal Injury Attorney Gloria Seidule, who won a nearly $1.3 million judgment against WalMart on 6 February, 2013 [St. Lucie County Florida Circuit Court Case# 562011CA002728AXXXHC - TOM PAPAKALODOUKAS VS WAL-MART STORES INC], believes that everyone should know what to do following an injury or an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. She’s recently added a new page to her website that instructs people on what steps to take in the event that they’re injured.
“In order to have the best chance of a successful personal injury case, there are specific things you should and should not do,” Gloria explained. “I make sure I go over this information with my clients because I want a positive outcome for all of them. Following an injury or an accident, it’s common for people to feel overwhelmed and confused about the best steps to take. Listening to the advice of your attorney is always recommended.”
Firstly, Gloria stresses the importance of communication. When visiting a doctor, even if only for a consultation, tell your attorney; the same applies for receiving test results, being prescribed medication and being referred to a specialist. If you are unsatisfied with your doctor, let your attorney know as soon as possible so a suitable doctor can be found.
Tell every doctor every symptom. For appointments with a back and neck specialist, you should also mention if you are experiencing pain elsewhere on your body. Be as thorough as possible and don’t leave out any relevant information; do not tell the doctor anything irrelevant to your care. Tell every doctor your medical history and be consistent when you explain how your injury or accident occurred. This will avoid confusion that could damage your case down the line.
Follow all instructions from the doctor, take all medication as prescribed and follow through with each referral while communicating this information to your attorney.
“If you see a general practitioner and they refer you to a back and neck specialist, let your attorney know before you go to the appointment,” Gloria explained. “Keeping your attorney informed about every detail of your medical care will only serve to benefit your case.”
