When to Seek Treatment After a Car Wreck – Studio 10

Accidents are terrifying and confusing events. In the immediate aftermath you may feel unsure about what kind of medical treatment you may need.  David Greene recently talked with Joe Emer on Studio 10 to talk about the different treatment options available and which one might be right for you.

Should I Accept an Ambulance Ride?

The number one priority after a wreck is your own health. If you think you need an ambulance, do not hesitate because of the cost. Your wellbeing is paramount, and financial concerns can be handled later.

If you choose not to take an ambulance, however, it is crucial to get checked out by a doctor to ensure that there are no underlying injuries that may become problematic later on.

Should I Visit an Urgent Care?

If you decide to go to urgent care, be clear with your doctor about the incident. Let them know you were involved in a crash, describe what happened, and point out if and where you feel pain. Clear and thorough communication doctor is vital in ensuring proper treatment.

Can a Chiropractor or Physical Therapist Help?

It may be tricky to decide whether to go see a chiropractor or a physical therapist after your car wreck.  Both can provide excellent care. The decision depends on the specifics of your case and individual needs. Consulting with a lawyer to discuss your situation may help you determine the best course of treatment.

How Can I Manage Costs?

It’s no secret that medical treatment can be expensive, especially if you have inadequate health insurance. Talking with a local lawyer can help you keep the cost down.  Lawyers like Greene & Phillips have established relationships with physical therapists, chiropractors, and urgent care facilities and can help you obtain a letter of protection to get the care you need to recover with no upfront cost and paid out of any eventual settlement. This is just one more reason why it’s so important to talk to a lawyer as soon as you can after a car wreck.
