Sign the Petition – Don’t take doctors away from car accident victims in Delaware!

Hi, I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz,

Today we are going to talk about a topic that has absolutely got me all riled up. I found out today that there is a bill, proposed legislation, that is going to go into the senate in the state of Delaware that limits what doctors and physical therapists can receive in the way of compensation for treating my clients, for treating victims of car accidents. You might be looking at this and say what the heck do I care about that? I will tell you why you should care about that.

The reason why you should care about this is because every single person who is watching this video, or their family members, or their friends, or their neighbors, or their coworkers, is going to be injured in a car accident at some point in Delaware. I have this problem. Every week people come to me, or the attorneys in my office, and they say, “I was injured in a car accident, I cannot move my arm, my back is messed up, my neck is messed up, I hit my knee and my knee is giving out. I’ve got these injuries, I called my family doctor and the family doctor office said, what do you need to come in and see doctor such-and-such about? I told them the problem that I am having. I told them it is from a car accident. When they heard it is from a car accident, they said we don’t do that. Doctor such-and-such does not handle injuries from a car accident.” Or, they have been told you can come in, doctor such-and-such will see you for your injuries, but you have to pay cash. The reason is because it is difficult to deal with auto insurance companies if you are a doctor or a physical therapist. People who have been injured in accidents in the state of Delaware cannot get in to see their family doctors. They cannot get in to see their choice of medical provider because the medical providers do not want to deal with the headache.

This bill is going to limit what doctors can bill and get paid for. It is going to make it even worse for people who have been injured in an accident and who are trying to get quality medical care. So for the first time, I am doing a video that has something to do with politics. I usually stay away from politics. I created a petition at change.org. I am asking you, if you are watching this video, go to the petition at change.org and sign your name to it. Ask the state of Delaware Senate and House of Representatives not to cap what doctors and physical therapist can get paid for auto accident cases. The reason I want you to do that is because God forbid you should ever be in a car accident. God forbid your friends, family members, coworkers, or neighbors should ever be in a car accident. But if you are, I want you to be able to go to your doctor and get treatment.

This bill that is pending in state legislature is going to make it harder for you to get the care that you are going to want and need. Go to the change.org petition, sign the petition, share this video on Facebook with your friends and family and the folks that you are connected to through Facebook. Comment on this video if you think this is something important. Thanks for watching and thanks for hearing my rant.
