In any accident or injury, an experienced, caring doctor is crucial and can mean life or death in some instances. And in the cases of car accidents, having a doctor who knows what to specifically check is important. This is because certain injuries can arise from car accidents, and having that correct treatment is key in personal injury claims.
So how do you find the right doctor after a car accident? And how do personal injury attorneys help their clients find a doctor who is knowledgeable about their particular injuries?
It’s important to find a doctor immediately
After an accident, it’s possible you may only feel minor pain or have no urgent medical need. Even if that’s the case, it’s still vital to see a doctor immediately. This will allow doctors to catch things that you might not have noticed.
Additionally, this will show a record that you sought help and there are no gaps between the accident and your claim. Often, if someone pursuing a claim waits to see a doctor, the insurance companies will call the gap into question.
Attorneys have a network of medical experts
Because personal injury attorneys work with victims all the time, they have a vast network of people they know. This includes doctors and specialists who work with victims of automobile accidents on a consistent basis. Having an experienced personal injury attorney means you’ll be able to get their insight into the right doctor for you.
Doctors are often called upon in cases
A personal injury attorney typically will call upon doctors to serve as experts in cases. During this process, the doctors spend a great deal of time speaking with clients and assessing the injuries. After this assessment, doctors will often develop a life care plan predicting future medical needs for the victim, which is helpful in personal injury claims.
