Personal Injury Q & A

What is personal injury?

Personal injury cases refer to bodily injuries directly or indirectly caused by another person. When you’re injured in this way, you need expert medical care to guide you through recovery and help you resume your pre-injury life. Pavilion Family Medicine provides comprehensive personal injury care from the moment of injury to your return to work. 

What are the most common personal injuries?

Some of the most common personal injuries occur due to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Slip-and-fall
  • Trip-and-fall
  • Fall from a ladder or other high-up area
  • Dog and other types of animal bites
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Workplace accidents (workers’ compensation) 

While the specific injuries can vary widely from one situation to another, a few common ones are ligament sprains, muscle or tendon strains, whiplash, and fractures. 

When should I schedule a personal injury assessment?

If you’re involved in an accident on the road, at work, or anywhere else outside your own home, it’s wise to schedule a personal injury assessment at Pavilion Family Medicine right away even if you don’t have any symptoms. Some injuries aren’t apparent immediately, at least in terms of the symptoms you experience. 

For example, a whiplash injury might not cause symptoms until a few days after the accident. Waiting until you have symptoms delays your diagnosis and treatment, so it’s always best to get checked out just in case you have a nonvisible injury.

What happens in a personal injury assessment?

A personal injury assessment is a physical exam paying particular attention to an area of injury or the areas most likely to be injured during an accident. Along with the physical exam, you’ll usually need X-rays and may need other types of imaging. 

Pavilion Family Medicine reviews your medical history and gathers details about your accident, so your injury is documented as fully as possible from the very start. 

You’ll receive treatment recommendations based on your injury, symptoms, and prognosis. Some common aspects of personal injury treatment usually involve physical therapy, modifying activities temporarily, and pain relief such as medication. 

Trusting your personal injury to Pavilion Family Medicine means you can get dependable medical care and return to normal activities while feeling your best. Call the office or click on the online scheduler to set up your personal injury assessment today.
