When you have been in a car accident, you can become overwhelmed by the situation and everything you need to do – including notifying the insurance company, getting your car fixed and contacting a car accident attorney. But the most important thing after a car accident is getting well.

No amount of money can make up for having a permanent injury from the car accident. This is especially true if medical treatment could have helped you avoid suffering from that permanent injury.

Assuming you have health insurance, it’s best to you have your family doctor direct your medical treatment, if at all possible. When your family doctor is in charge of your care, he or she can make recommendations on whether you should receive chiropractic treatments or physical therapy treatments, or see a specialist for your injuries from the accident.

But not everyone has a family doctor or health insurance, or your family doctor might not treat you for an injury related to an insurance claim. If that’s the case, the lawyers at Joye Law Firm can help line up medical treatment for you.

If you have not yet seen a doctor for your car accident injuries or do not have access to continued care, please discuss that with us immediately. We want you to become whole again.

It’s also extremely important that you make it to each and every doctor’s appointment. One of the biggest problems lawyers face in resolving car accident cases is when there is a gap in medical treatment. Every insurance company will make an issue out of any gap in treatment.

The bottom line when it comes to your medical treatment after a car accident is keep your doctor’s appointments and make sure you get well.
