Not everyone likes going to the doctor, but after an accident related to automobiles, work, or from another cause, it’s important to get checked out by a medical professional. Doing so will ensure that you are in good health, can identify major problems that might not be visible, and can get proper and effective treatment for a full recovery.

What are my injuries and how severe are they?

Some injuries can look really bad but aren’t as severe as we think while some injuries may not look back but can have more severe implications if not treated correctly. This is why it’s important to visit a doctor after any kind of accident, regardless if things seem okay at first. Knowing how bad the injury is can help you make a better decision about how to proceed.

Will I be able to return to work?

Some accidents on the road or in the workplace can be severe enough to require you to stay home or bedridden for days, week, or months at a time in order to recover. It’s important to ask your personal injury doctor whether or not you can return to work or when you will be able to. If you can’t return to work, your personal or auto injury doctor will be able to provide you with documentation that will allow you to demonstrate to your employer why it would be unsafe to return to work.

What’s covered by my worker’s compensation or insurance? What do I need to pay out of pocket?

The doctor visits that you go to and treatment that you receive from a medical doctor may be covered in certain situations, such as a work related accident or when you need to visit an auto injury doctor. An experienced personal injury doctor can help you understand if your workers comp or insurance can cover expenses related to the accident.
