If you were involved in an accident and were injured, it’s important that you get medical care and legal help right away. Many people go to the emergency room or their regular doctor, but if the emergency room is full or you don’t have a regular doctor, you may be interested in visiting a walk in medical clinic. When visiting a walk in medical clinic from 1-800-We-Treat, you can be confident that your needs will be met quickly, and courteously.
What to Bring
Before visiting a walk in medical clinic for your car accident injuries, take a moment to gather a few things. You’ll need identification, your health insurance card if you have one (although this is not always necessary because in many cases, patients pay nothing at all), and notes about how the accident happened and how you were injured.
What to Expect
A walk in medical clinic for accidents functions much like any other urgent care clinic, however, the people in the waiting room have more than coughs and colds — they may be seriously injured after being involved in an accident. Expect to give your doctor details about the accident, how it happened and what happened, and a thorough rundown of what symptoms you have been experiencing. Your doctor will perform a full examination and may order tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or blood work to get a better picture of what you may be dealing with. Then, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan, which may include chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery to relieve pain.
Questions to Ask
To better understand what injuries you are suffering from and what you’ll face as the days and weeks wear on, ask your medical provider several questions. Ask your provider to explain to you in detail your injuries, what reatments are recommended, and how those treatments will help. Ask if you have any physical limitations, such as avoiding lifting or walking, and for how long those limitations are expected to last.
