A car wreck can be a very traumatic experience that leaves you in severe physical pain and potentially financial hardship. Our Team at McDivitt Law Firm fights for the rights of car crash victims every day, but fighting for their rights doesn’t just mean getting them the compensation they deserve. After you have been in a car accident it is extremely important that you focus on your healing, both physically and emotionally. However, you’ve probably never thought about how an attorney can help you with that process.
Of course an attorney is not a doctor, and therefore, cannot diagnose you and provide you with treatment. However, personal injury attorneys have seen many clients with similar injuries come in and out of their offices—they are keen observers. And while an attorney cannot suggest medical treatment to you, he or she may notice certain common traits among clients and take note of that. Thus, your attorney better understands your case. A personal injury attorney can assist in the selection of medical providers who are knowledgeable in the medical needs and treatment of the victims of collisions. Many times it may take a second opinion to discover all required treatment a patient needs after being injured in an auto accident. An attorney is here to guide auto accident victims to those providers to ensure that all medical needs are met.
Often times, car crash victims may not realize how injured they are until it is too late. It’s important for you to seek medical treatment first, but then to also acquire the help of an experienced attorney to handle your auto accident claim. The attorney along with your medical provider will be able to assess your whole situation, ensure you get the proper treatment, and then resolve your claim. The two can work together. Additionally, during that time you can focus on your health, and not worry about the claims process.
Remember, you owe it to your family and yourself to get completely checked out by medical professionals for all pain or injuries stemming from your accident in order that all treatment to help you heal can be paid while the claim process is still going. After this, an attorney can help you heal through the rest of the process by being your advocate in all matters. If you have been injured in a car crash, don’t wait to get an attorney on your side.
