Consult a NYC injury Doctor

If you are in an auto accident, you and your doctor, your car insurance company’s claims adjuster, and possibly your personal injury attorney will be involved in evaluating your personal injury.

However, you and your doctor play the biggest roles.

After the accident, get a copy of the police report and visit a licensed physician. If the accident occurs in the town where you live and not while you are away from home on vacation, visit your personal physician.

Keep these tips in mind while you're with your doctor:

  • Be sure to tell your physician that you were involved in an auto accident.

  • Ask your physician to perform a complete examination on you.

  • If you are experiencing head pain, ask to have an MRI conducted.

Examine pre-existing injuries (e.g. ultrasounds, x-rays) to record whether or not the injuries were intensified due to the car accident. Your personal physician has your medical history, and his or her records can help you to establish that injuries related to the accident were not pre-existing, and whether any pre-existing conditions were made worse.
 

Keep copies of all of your medical bills and examination results. Also keep records of the number of days that you miss from work due to injuries that you suffered during the auto accident.
