Automobile Accidents & Work-Related Injuries
Three Steps To Follow When You've Been Involved In An Accident:
1. Call the police and have a police report filled out. 2. Call the insurance company or attorney to set up a claim. 3. Call Physicians Medical and Rehab at (985) 307-0977 to have your injuries evaluated and properly treated.
Physicians Medical and Rehab (PM&R) provides comprehensive rehabilitation programs for people injured in a car accident. It all starts with a thorough examination by both the chiropractor (D.C.) and medical doctor (M.D.) to determine the nature and extent of your injuries. This may or may not include x-rays depending on the nature of your accident. Once the injuries have been fully assessed, treatment begins immediately.
Injuries from an auto accident do not always appear immediately. With the type of injuries suffered in these types of accidents, pain might not appear for 12 to 48 hours following the accident.
