Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accident

  • After a car accident, it is important to be evaluated as soon as possible.

    It is best for you to be evaluated right away after a car accident, even if you are not experiencing severe pain. Have an evaluation if you are suffering from any type of discomfort.  Dis-ease, in any form —from neck pain to depression—is significant. Injuries may take days or weeks to appear; even low speed accidents can cause long-term damage.  Arrangements can be made for you to be seen by a provider on the same day of the accident.
