Personal Injury Q & A

What is a personal injury?

Personal injuries can include any type of trauma you experience due to someone else’s negligence. Some of the most common types of personal injuries stem from:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slips and falls
  • Dog bites

 

You can even become injured if someone assaults or attacks you. In any case, personal injuries can lead to ongoing pain and life-altering limitations if you don’t seek immediate medical attention.   

When should I see a doctor after a personal injury?

Getting coverage for your personal injury expenses, as well as getting reimbursed for missed work or pain and suffering, requires you to undergo a medical evaluation. Because of this, you need to schedule a personal injury evaluation at The Medical Dock as soon as possible after your injury occurs, even if your injury seems minor.

Plus, since pain and discomfort can continue to progress for several days after your personal injury, you need to have a thorough evaluation with Dr. Ahmad if you experience:

  • Back pain or neck pain, especially from whiplash
  • Swelling, bruising, or inflammation
  • Pain while walking or standing
  • Difficulty bearing weight on a limb
  • Limited range-of-motion in a joint

Dr. Ahmad has extensive training in personal injury evaluations. He spends time evaluating you and can even request in-office X-rays or ultrasounds to diagnose you quickly and start your treatment plan. Depending on your diagnosis and symptoms, your personal injury treatment plan may include physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, or pain management.

How do I prepare for a personal injury medical exam?

Since personal injuries involve several parties, including your lawyer and insurance company, as well as the other party and their insurance company, Dr. Ahmad performs any essential testing and helps you throughout the paperwork process. To prepare for your personal injury medical exam at The Medical Dock, it’s helpful to:

  • Bring in your current health insurance information
  • Get information about the other party’s insurance
  • Print out any required legal or insurance paperwork

Dr. Ahmad is a trusted personal injury practitioner. You can feel confident that he’s going to help you through every stage of your personal injury treatment and recovery process, so you can recover without stressing about medical payments and paperwork.
