Seeking medical attention after sustaining a personal injury from an accident is critical to your health as well as the success of your claim. However, the challenge of deciding how to obtain medical attention as an accident victim can often times be difficult. It is crucial that you speak with your attorney before giving any information to your insurance company.

Hello, my name is attorney Frank Penney and this is the Legal Minute. How do you get medical care? If you have health insurance, then see your primary care physician. Encourage your doctor to refer you out for the appropriate diagnostics. X-rays and perhaps CT scans and MRIs; and treatment such as physical therapy and perhaps chiropractic. If your injuries persist and you need specialized care, then get the appropriate referrals to specialists such as on orthopedic surgeons and pain management doctors.

This means the doctor agrees to provide care now, and gets paid later once your personal injury case settles. A competent personal injury attorney can guide you through this process and help you obtain good medical care you need.
