Serious Cases need Serious Doctors

If you’ve been involved in an auto crash your injuries could vary from minor to life-threatening.  Having a team of Doctors that understand your injuries and how to handle a personal injury case is vitally important.  They will aid you in your recovery as well in the recovery of your losses.  Not all Doctors are created equal; just as all mechanics or lawyers aren’t created equal.  Many times Doctors will specialize in a sub-specialty within their chosen field.  Such as a Medical Doctor specializing in pediatrics or emergency medicine; the same is true for Physical Therapists and Chiropractors.  Here at the Denver Integrated Spine Center, our Doctors all specialize in automobile crashes.  We are the experts within the community in regards to the biomechanics of an auto accident, how you get injured, and to what extent you get injured.  No two crashes are the same and each has to be addressed with all the relevant variables that will affect the outcome of the crash.

Car Crash Doctors

In a personal injury case, your Doctors job is much more than merely getting you healthy after your crash.  They are also responsible for being able to substantiate your injuries; meaning that they have to be able to prove that your injuries were derived from your crash.  This means that your Doctors have to be well versed in the current literature in regards to crashes and this includes but is not limited to; force vectors, linear kinematics, deformations, injury grading systems, changes in velocity to the occupant, g-forces, and outcome assessments.

If your doctor does not understand the basics of a crash they will be doing you and your case a disservice if the insurance company refuses to pay for the injuries that have occurred.  How will they be able to prove it? If they can’t you will have to pay the medical bills out of your pocket and likely not get a settlement!  That is why it’s incredibly important to see our Doctors to ensure that all aspects of your case are taken into consideration.  In the event that the offending parties’ insurance company doesn’t want to pay the bills that have accrued, there is a high probability that your case will be headed to court.  It is now your Doctors responsibility to go to court on your behalf and once again substantiate your injuries and prove that your treatment was reasonable and necessary.

If your Doctor isn’t well versed in car accidents, how do you think this is going to go.  Not well, we can promise you that.  They will be going against a personal injury defense attorney that only specializes in this area.  The outcome will not be favorable and now you’re still stuck with your bills and now lawyer fees on top of that.  Having a specialized group of Doctors is very important for your recovery and also in regards to the medical-legal ramifications of a personal injury case.  As you can see your Doctor will be doing much more than meets the eye for you and your case.  They are required to do many things to ensure that you get treated fairly by the insurance companies.  It is now easy to see how these types of situations can quickly unravel in the event that your doctor doesn’t specialize in the field of auto accidents.
