Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 28, 2014
Contributing to Regional Medical Group’s series of legal medical roundtable discussions, Jay Drew of the law firm, Monge and Associates, teamed up with Dr. Chris Connelly from PainFreeAtlanta.com to examine the benefits of using the integrated care model to better serve personal injury patients and settle legal cases. As experts in the field of personal injury law, Monge and Associates heavily rely on the attorney-doctor relationship.
Monge and Associates’ reliance on medical expertise has grown exponentially over the years by co-managing the client’s care between a chiropractor and a medical doctor. This model not only provides enhanced care for the client, but also better documents the client’s injuries and diagnoses to the insurance company. Through the integrated care model, each attorney now leads his or her clients to medical doctors who have demonstrated their credibility through time-tested relationships.
“A few years ago, I was working on a case where the client had run up an enormous chiropractic bill over the course of two years,” added Drew. “I soon realized that if this person’s case was properly managed by the right medical doctors, involved at the right time, it would have made a huge difference, and we probably would have been able to settle without litigation.”
Overall, this multidisciplinary approach surpasses the outcome of personal injury cases that solely rely on chiropractic care. When clients simultaneously work with a medical doctor, chiropractor and an attorney, insurance companies cannot disregard a case that is validated by proper diagnostics and treatment.
“If it wasn’t for doctors and lawyers working together, personal injury victims would not receive the needed treatment that is necessary to recover from their pain and suffering,” said Scott Monge.
