What Should I Do If I Have Injuries From An Auto Accident?

Injuries sustained in a vehicle accident can be mild or very severe. You may have a strain, a few bruises, or more severe injuries like fractured bones or neurological damage. At Chicago Personal Injury Centers, we are ready, equipped, and eager to help you with any of these injuries. Our car accident injury treatment experts would like to offer this information to help in your post-accident journey.

Where Should I Go To Get Care After My Car Accident?

If you are injured enough to need immediate care at the accident, please accept transport by ambulance to the closest Emergency Room. You will get the promptest attention from a physician and can be admitted to the hospital if needed. Once you have addressed that urgent need, contact the Chicago Personal Injury Centers to get your other needs taken care of. If you do not require immediate care at the scene, studies show injury specialists offer the best care following a personal injury. Emergency and family or general physicians provide care for diagnoses ranging from but not limited to the flu, headaches, and fallen arches. Our physicians and providers specialize in diagnosing and treating personal injuries. Pain management and trauma recovery are what we specialize in, and we believe we do it best. We think you will agree.

What Types of Injuries Do We Treat at Chicago Personal Injury Centers?

With six million car accidents in the US per year, there is a wide range of injuries that you might incur in one. We can diagnose and treat all of these injuries to some extent. We offer care for almost all non-life-threatening problems. Some of the most common injuries are:

  • Soft tissue injuries are bruises, strains, and sprains of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Dislocated joints and broken bones may need to be reset by casting or surgical repair.
  • Neck injuries or whiplash frequently occur in car accidents caused by sudden head jerking at impact and breaking.
  • Back and head injuries can be mild to severe. These injuries often need urgent evaluation.
  • Spinal and Brain injuries need evaluation at the scene of the accident. These injuries can have long-term devastating effects, and urgent diagnosis is imperative.

What Types of Services are Available at Chicago Personal Injury Centers?

We offer most treatments you need to get on with your life after a vehicle accident. We start with an initial evaluation. A physician and a team of professionals will meet with you to listen to your experience and evaluate your condition. We have a full range of testing equipment onsite, including X-ray, CT, and MRI. That means we do not have to get you on a schedule at another testing testing facility and wait for results. After the radiologist, physician, and team members interpret the results of your tests, the team will create an individual plan for your needs. Initially, the process may seem stringent, but soon you will see results. You will see progress in your condition rapidly and feel better physically and emotionally. The design of your customized Pain Management Plan will include some or all:

  • Pain Management/Injection Therapies
  • Exercise and Therapy
  • Chiropractic Care
  • Non-Invasive Surgery
  • Referral if needed

Medication Management

Pain management is a crucial factor in the recovery from any traumatic injury. Auto accident victims experience pain in numerous places due to seat belt pulls, traumatic blows, sudden stops, and even from the rescue. All of our physicians are Double Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Interventional Pain. When necessary, we use injection therapies and pain blocks. We are experts in pain and pain medication management.

Massage & Physical Therapy

Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy are two hands-on treatment types that help alleviate pain, lessen muscle tension, and rehab muscles, ligaments, and fibers. These therapies will help improve muscle tone and flexibility to get you back to your pre-accident activities.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care at the Chicago Personal Injury Center focuses on relieving pain and improving function. Our Chiropractors are well-trained and experienced in diagnosing and treating any misalignment of the body. Manipulation and mobilization methods decrease pain and improve mobility.

Non-Invasive Surgery

Non-invasive surgery can produce exceptional results without the risks of conventional surgery. Effective non-surgical treatment is now available for many diagnoses that required surgery just a few years ago. Advances in medical technology have provided us with treatment options that produce better results with fewer risks. Non-invasive surgery offers quicker recovery time, reduced risk of complications, less post-op discomfort, and minimal scarring. We have non-invasive treatment options available for these types of injuries.

  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Tendon and Ligament Injuries
  • Joint Injuries
  • Fractures
  • Spinal Injuries

Referrals are promptly given to other specialists when needed. If your condition requires conventional surgery, we have relationships with many surgeons to refer you to for treatment. We will also gladly provide you with a Mental Health referral if needed. Many car accident victims develop PTSD and are afraid to ride in a car or drive. We can also refer you to legal counsel if you need legal assistance. A personal injury attorney can help relieve you of some of the work and stress that results from a car accident and the subsequent claim process. They can advise you on the case and the probability of you recovering damages.
