If you have been seriously injured, chances are you’ll see a doctor. But the type of doctor you see depends on when you visit the physician, what kind of care you need, and how long your treatment lasts. Personal injury doctors range from ER physicians to primary care doctors and specialists, as well as chiropractors and physical therapists.
Serious car accidents usually result in an ambulance ride to the emergency room. There, an ER doctor will assess your injuries and address any immediate care needs. If you have injuries that require immediate surgery, the ER trauma surgeon will be called in. Once you are stable, you will either be released with instructions to follow-up with your primary care doctor or a specialist or you will be admitted to the hospital.
ER staff are focused on the immediate care needed to save lives and minimize trauma and long-term damage. In most cases, patients will need to be seen by additional personal injury doctors to completely recover.
In addition to doctors, accident victims may also be seen by nurses, radiologists, X-ray technicians, and anesthesiologists in order to accurately diagnose and treat the injury. Mental health professionals may be called in to help victims recover from anxiety and post-traumatic stress.
Car accidents can have long-lasting effects on your body, both mental and physical. It may be years before a victim is fully healed even with help from excellent personal injury doctors. If you are having trouble recovering from an accident financially or believe someone else is at fault for the accident, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering. Personal injury compensation can help victims cover medical expenses and time off of work so they can focus on healing and recovery.
