Post-Motor Vehicle Accident Examinations
Many people don’t think about what they should do about any potential injuries, but they react quickly to call their auto insurance agent. Getting a thorough examination following an accident is the best way to see if you are injured and need treatment to relieve pain or prevent an injury from getting worse. Sometimes you can be injured internally so the injury is not apparent immediately but can quickly worsen. Our experienced healthcare providers can conduct a thorough physical exam to determine if you have injuries that are not immediately obvious. They can recommend medications, physical therapy, and other treatments as deemed necessary.
Delaying Exams After the Accident
We realize some people like to avoid going to the doctor after an accident because they want to get their auto insurance taken care of and rest. If you delay seeing a medical professional, any injury can get worse, even become life threatening. Without the right treatment, a minor injury can become worse and turn into a chronic/long-term problem. Seeing a doctor right away is the best way to minimize the risk of developing accident-related complications. Don’t delay – get seen right away!
Exams and Legal Claims
If you are considering filing a lawsuit or legal claim following an accident, it is very important that you get a post-accident exam. By having a medical professional document your car accident injuries and recommend the right treatments, it can help by showing your attorney or insurance company that you needed to seek medical treatment following the accident. The responsible party may be liable for your medical expenses and lost work time. If you do not seek medical attention, representatives from your insurance company, or the other driver’s attorney, might assume you were not insured by the accident.
Offering Compassionate Care
Following an auto accident, you may experience headaches, back or neck pain, and/or other symptoms of an injury. Get these symptoms evaluated to be sure you do not have more serious injuries that need immediate medical treatment. Come to our urgent care where our compassionate staff can treat your injuries and document them for your insurance company.
