Why You Need an Auto Accident Doctor

auto accident doctorYou may have a great rapport with your family doctor but it is usually better for BOTH of you to go to a doctor who specializes in car accidents. Physicians who specialize in car accidents not only know how to treat your injury, but they understand how to document it and bill the auto insurance companies. While getting healed is your first priority, as attorneys, we can not stress how important it is to make sure all of your injuries are documented correctly. By “documented correctly” we mean, photographs, statements, timely treatments and they are essential to ensure you get the best possible outcome if you bring a case against the at-fault driver or his insurance company. Your average family doctor does not have experience with this level of documentation, and therefore may miss an important piece of documentation you need.

Another reason your family doctor may refuse to treat you has to do with litigation. Sometimes car accident cases cannot be settled and going to trial is inevitable. At that point, the family care doctor may be subpoenaed to testify or, at the very least, get deposed by the two litigating parties. A family care doctor (generally) is more used to treating colds, stomach pains and twisted ankles, than testifying in open court. Plus, this whole process can be very time consuming for him, and in turn, very costly because he or she cannot see their usual patients. Therefore, family doctors gladly pass this responsibility onto the physicians who specialize in car accident injuries, because they ARE familiar with the whole legal process and will (most likely) present a better case for you. If you have questions about how to obtain treatment, we are available to discuss your medical treatment and what you expected outcome can be, so give us a call at (480) 634-7480.
