There has been great concern from clients injured in auto accidents during this time. Many are afraid to go to the emergency room or physical therapy due to potential Coronavirus exposure. We understand this reasonable concern but we also know that avoiding treatment could result in losing the value of your case entirely. The following are some alternatives to safely receive treatment during this pandemic season:
● If you don’t need to go to the emergency room, you can have a virtual medical appointment with your primary care physician where they will listen to your symptoms and provide a diagnosis.
● Some physical therapists are offering virtual therapy appointments where they provide guided instructions for clients to carry out prescribed treatment in the safety and comfort of their homes.
We know that nothing can replace in-person care from your doctors and if you are truly in need of urgent care, it is important to seek emergency assistance. Hospitals are diligently working to minimize risks for both patients and staff. Nevertheless, during this unprecedented time, telehealth can offer you the opportunity to remain safe, receive treatment and salvage your case!
