By Dr. Troy Davis Chiropractic Physician accident injury Professional
What kind of doctor should I see after a car accident injury? I get this question a lot. One of the most important things to find out is which doctors in your area will treat victims of auto accidents. You can call the office of Troy Davis DC because I have developed a network of physicians and specialists who will accept auto accident cases. There are many doctors that do not treat auto accidents victims due to several different factors. The primary reason is usually because of financial reasons; the clinic is not equipped to bill PIP (personal injury protection) or no fault insurance. Having been in an accident your personal injury protection insurance benefits become primary and your regular medical insurance will not cover those injuries. A secondary reason why some doctors will not see personal injury protection patient’s is the legal process that goes along with treating a car accident injury.
If you experience pain immediately after an auto accident I strongly recommend going to the emergency room. Your visit to the emergency room should be paid under the PIP or personal injury protection insurance. It is important to note that emergency room is only looking for major injuries such as broken bones, internal bleeding, or brain injury. They will provide important needed care to make sure that you’re stabilized and will usually release you; they do not offer any long-term treatment that most auto accident injuries can benefit from.
What do you do for an accident injury after going to the ER?
After an emergency room visit, most people will still experience pain and discomfort from their injuries and need further treatment. Dr. Troy Davis and his staff can help with the evaluation of your injuries and get you valuable information on the types of therapies and treatments that will help you get back to the way you felt before the accident. At our St. George location we can connect you with a network of providers including: Gen. medical practitioners, orthopedist, neurologist, pain management, chiropractic, massage therapy, and physiotherapy doctors. We also can request and refer you out for further imaging studies like x-rays, CT scans or MRIs.
Depending on your injuries from an auto accident you may need certain specialists. Some people will have whiplash syndrome and neck pain others may have wrist pain, hip pain, ankle pain or other injuries. These injuries from auto accidents are no joke. Just as a point of protecting your rights as a victim of an automobile accident you should have your injuries documented by a medical professional. Summit chiropractic and Dr. Troy Davis also recommend finding an attorney who deals specifically with auto accident injury cases. A capable attorney will be able to make sure that your rights are protected and that you get the treatment and care that you need for your auto accident injuries.
