Finding a Doctor After an Austin Motorcycle Crash
After a motorcycle accident, it is important to get the best medical treatment available for a smooth and successful recovery - but you can’t randomly pick just any doctor. To make sure that your health is restored, you need to have the financial resources to pay for efficient medical care and taking legal action against the party at-fault for your accident is the best way to do that; one of the key factors in this legal process is your doctor.
At King Law Firm, Ray King, "The Motorcycle Attorney," has been representing and advocating for the victims of Texas motorcycle accidents for more than 21 years and knows how important medical documentation is to a case. You deserve to hold the at-fault driver or other party accountable for causing your accident and Ray King is committed to fighting for you, but the decisions you make about who your doctor is has an impact.
The following include some helpful tips on how to choose a doctor who will not only help you recover to the best of your ability but who will also help you in your fight for compensation:
- Stay close to home or work. It would be best to find a doctor whose office is near your home or work so that it would be convenient to travel to multiple times a week, if necessary.
- Research a physician’s qualifications and credentials, including board certification, and speak to former or current patients if possible. You not only want a respected and qualified doctor for your own health, but also so that if called as a witness, his or her testimony would be highly valued.
- Proper bedside manner is important. A doctor who dismisses your complaints and/or is always too busy to see you or who doesn’t prescribe the proper testing or therapy is not the doctor for you.
- Make sure the doctor you choose is comfortable with the fact that you are recovering after an accident and in the claim or litigation process. The doctor must be okay with documenting everything for your case and even be willing to provide testimony on your behalf. An indifferent physician, even one comfortable with accident-related situations may not work out. You want a doctor who is on your side.
