How to Find a Doctor after a Car Accident (A Simple Guide)

A Simple Explanation of How to Find a Doctor after a Car Accident. This video will teach you why you need to see a specialist for your injuries and NOT your primary care physician. – Matt Powell, Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer

This video offers advice on how to find a doctor after a car accident. The first and most important thing to do is seek a doctor right away. Waiting days, weeks, or months could result in permanent impairment or worse. It’s never a good idea to put your health on the back burner, especially after a traumatic event like a car crash.

A big mistake most people make is going solely to their primary care doctor. It’s fine to see your primary doctor, but do not rely only on them. They are not specialized to treat injuries caused by car accidents. Ask to be referred to a specialist so you can get proper treatment and increase your chances of healing from the injury.

Another reason to seek treatment from a specialist is the quality of their medical records. If you bring a personal injury claim, the value of your case in the insurance companies’ eyes will be based on the quality of the medical records your doctors produce.

You primary care doctor most likely focuses their practice on internal medicine. A doctor who specializes in certain other types of health would include orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, physiatrists, and other kinds of qualified injury doctors.

Insurance companies know that most people don’t know how to find a doctor after a car accident that will help them prove the extent and severity of their injuries. Specialists know the games that insurance companies play and can adequately document your condition in a way the insurance company can understand.

Make sure you avoid doctors from legal referral services. Unfortunately, there are a lot of legal referral services that exist only to churn out cases like a meat factory. The doctors that a legal referral service will recommend are just looking for a quick buck and will not have your best interest at heart. They will only decrease the value of your personal injury case and steal your PIP insurance.

When you finally find a specialist to treat your injuries, make sure you tell them about ALL of your prior injuries and pre-existing conditions. If you fail to mention something from the past, the insurance company will assume that you lied to your doctor and make a big deal about it during your case. Also, pre-existing injuries will help your case, not hurt it. People with previous injuries and pre-existing conditions are easier to hurt and harder to fix.

Once you begin treatment with your specialists, keep treating. Do not allow gaps in your treatment to occur. If you do, the insurance company will assume you were lying about being hurt because you stopped treating your injuries. Hurt people seek treatment. If you are not hurt, that is great and consider yourself very fortunate. If you are hurt, then you need to put your health first and follow a regimented treatment plan with your specialists.

If you can’t afford a specialist, there are some that will treat you if you have a good personal injury lawyer. These doctors will agree to treat you and wait to be paid at the end of your case. Lawyers can help you find the right experts to document your injuries, harms, and losses.

  5. It was the bikers fault he should’ve waited.. That’s why people in Korea get into so many accidents like who do you blame lol

  6. I know this is a great drama but I feel so bad for Sung kyu. While ShinHye gets everyone's affection (I'm happy for her tho), Sungkyu lacks it. I stopped watching this.

  7. En verdad les digo.interpreten mi silencio.ese drama de doctores jovenes no se parese alos doctored churiyama y los demas elenco

  8. It’s crazy how they didn’t continue with his story in the drama. Jiso’s character was one of the best friends of the female lead that had a pretty bad accident, they operated him and then he never appeared again. Why?!!!
