How do I find the right medical care after a car accident?
Even accidents that don’t cause a lot of property damage have the potential to cause serious injuries and it can be difficult to find the right doctor, especially if you don’t have a family physician. The first thing to remember is that you should always seek treatment immediately after the accident, whether it’s at an emergency room or an urgent care center, if appropriate. Second, make sure to get instructions on follow-up treatment, which typically includes chiropractic visits, physical therapy, or an MRI. If the emergency care professionals did not give you specific referrals to another doctor or if you want a second option, we have a number of physicians who have helped our clients in the past and who are experienced in treating the types of injuries that are common after an accident.
