Auto Injury Treatment In Florida

Medical choices, insurance, repairs, and even legal issues: Auto injuries are often multi-faceted. Please read on for a brief overview of the topic, and please do not hesitate to contact us to begin a personalized consultation process.

What Are Some Common Auto Injuries?

One of the most common injuries associated with car crashes is whiplash. It is characterized by neck pain and lack of mobility, but there could be other symptoms. Common treatments include chiropractic care, trigger point injections, and physical therapy.

Because of the forces involved, car crashes often create various types of problems other than whiplash. Some of these are immediately apparent, such as burns, cuts, or broken bones. You could also experience limb, back, or other neck injuries — issues that may not always be obvious from their symptoms. If you think you have an injury of some type, you should let a professional take a look at you to determine what could be wrong.

Do I Need To Go to the Doctor?

Yes, you should go see a doctor soon after being involved in a crash. Auto injuries anywhere require immediate attention, but that is especially the case in Florida. The law here requires drivers to carry insurance to cover the cost of their own injuries. However, you typically only have 14 days to seek initial treatment for any emergency medical condition in order to gain the full benefits from your insurance.

You may not need to go to the emergency room, depending on the severity of your condition. Many different types of medical professionals can identify emergency medical conditions. However, please remember to put your health first when deciding which form of immediate treatment to pursue.

What Type of Doctor Do I Need After a Crash?

One of the most important concerns you should have is seeing a doctor as soon as possible. Do not worry about what type of injury you might have. The professional with whom you consult will be able to identify your condition, and then provide treatment or direct you to a specialist who can help you.

Can a Low-Impact Collision Cause Injuries?

Yes, low-speed collisions still have the potential to cause serious injuries — especially to your joints and soft tissues. Even low-impact situations could involve large amounts of inertial force being transferred into your body. If you suspect you have an injury, you should get a professional opinion regardless of the speed of the collision.

Remember that your case is unique. Feel free to use this information as a general guideline, but please seek professional advice to ensure the best possible outlook for your condition. Please call (941) 921-4884 to schedule your personalized consultation.
