Common Injuries From Accidents

Injuries that frequently occur in accidents include:

Emergency Medical Care

Personal Injury Back Problems Lakeland FL

When you have an injury from an accident, the first thing you should do is get the appropriate emergency medical care that you need. If you have a life-threatening condition, a hospital with an emergency department is required by federal (EMTALA) and Florida law (section 395.1041, Fla. Stat.) to provide you with treatment regardless of the ability to pay for care or how difficult or expensive to treat.

You may need emergency surgery or medication that could save your life.  You should not hesitate to get the emergency care that you need.

Where Should I Get Medical Treatment for My Injury?

You should choose where to go based on the severity of your injury.  If your injury is serious and life-threatening, you should go to a certified trauma center such as Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center (Level II trauma) if possible.

A hospital that is not a certified trauma center may not have the ability to adequately treat you for a serious condition and may cost valuable time in a transfer to a qualified hospital where you can be properly diagnosed and treated.  The closest Level I trauma centers are located at Tampa General Hospital and Orlando Regional Medical Center.

If your injury or illness is serious enough, you will be transferred from a Level II trauma center to Tampa or Orlando for specialized care.

If your injury is not life-threatening but you are in severe pain, an urgent care clinic of your choice is probably the best choice for immediate relief with follow-up care with a specialist.

Finally, if nothing is broken and your injury is a sprain or strain type injury, then you may want to just make an appointment to see an outpatient medical clinic or chiropractor during their business hours.

Getting Advanced Care From a Specialist

After your initial visit, you may be placed on an individualized treatment plan that may involve physical or occupational therapy as needed.  More advanced options for treatment and visits with specialists include:

  • mechanical spinal traction
  • cortisone injections
  • epidural steroid injections
  • advanced imaging such as MRI or CT scans
  • EEG or nerve conduction studies
  • medial branch nerve blocks and radio-frequency ablation or laser neurotomy
  • electrical muscle stimulation
  • arthroscopy and ligament repair
  • neck or back surgery, including discectomy, laminectomy, disc replacement, and fusion

Compensation for Your Medical Bills

Medical care is expensive. If you’re injured in an accident, the bills soon add up. Hiring a Lakeland personal injury attorney can help you recoup these expenses as well as obtain compensation for:

  • pain and suffering
  • inconvenience
  • missed time from work and loss of future earning capacity
  • disability in the past and future
  • loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life
  • damages to your marriage (consortium)

Our personal injury attorneys in Lakeland can explain what medical expenses you can claim based on your case.

Move Your Personal Injury Case Forward with Legal Counsel

  • Your attorney will get to work right away to ensure that no critical evidence is lost.
  • An accident attorney will help you gather the right evidence to build a strong case.
  • You can focus on recovery while your attorney handles negotiations on your behalf.
  • An attorney can advise whether a settlement offer is fair – or if it’s best to go to trial to get the results you deserve.
