Personal Injury Q & A

What are types of personal injuries?

When you’re injured due to no fault of your own, that’s generally covered under personal injury law. Personal injury is a legal term that defines the injury as one made “to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property.”

Many different circumstances may be considered a personal injury. Here are some of the common ones seen at Wolfson Medical Center:

  • Car accident
  • Slip and fall
  • Dog bites
  • Assault or battery
  • Workplace accidents and injuries
  • Product defect-related injuries

Medical malpractice is another common area for personal injuries.

What is my doctor’s role in personal injury?

When you’re hurt or involved in an accident that isn’t your fault, your first step is to contact Wolfson Medical Center. The team assesses the nature and severity of your injury. This process includes:

  • Documenting your injury with medical records and tests
  • Evaluating your pain levels, loss of mobility, and other issues
  • Recommending treatment, as necessary
  • Scheduling appointments with physical therapists or chiropractors

By seeking care at Wolfson Medical Center, you’ll be provided with complete medical records to allow your lawyer to fully understand the nature of your injury. If your personal injury case goes to trial, a jury typically considers your medical evidence to determine the amount of compensation for your claim.

What happens during a personal injury medical exam?

Your provider at Wolfson Medical Center evaluates your injury by performing a physical exam. Though your exam varies depending on your specific injury, you can expect questions, such as:

  • When and how did the injury occur?
  • How do you feel?
  • What causes you pain?

Your provider recommends you undergo screening and diagnostic tests, as necessary. You may need:

  • X-rays
  • MRI
  • CT scan

Wolfson Medical Center offers X-ray services onsite at its Tropicana location. The practice also provides lab tests onsite for your convenience.

Your provider then recommends a treatment plan for you based on your diagnosis.

How is a personal injury treated?

Your treatment and rehabilitation are tailored to your injury. You may require pain medications or anti-inflammatories, depending on your condition.

The team at Wolfson Medical Center works in tandem with local specialists to set you on the path to recovery. They refer you to physical therapists and chiropractors in the area to provide appropriate medical care.

If you’ve suffered a personal injury, whether it was on the job or another location, you deserve the right diagnosis and treatment. To find out how Wolfson Medical Center can help you, call today, or book a consultation online.
