Car accidents and physical therapy: Know your legal options

There may come a time in your life when your doctor suggests physical therapy. While this may not be something that you want to do, it's important to realize that physical therapy has a positive effect on many people's health.

In fact, if you were injured in a car accident, physical therapy may be something that your doctor suggests in the near future, and it is important to know your legal options for covering the cost of this kind of care.

The goal of physical therapy is not the same for every person, but one thing always holds true: physical therapy is meant to help you recover from an injury or ailment and help you live a better life in the future.

Things to expect

As you get involved with physical therapy, you will sit down with your therapist to discuss your health and the reasons why you need help. From there, you can work with the therapist to implement a routine that will improve your health and well-being.

The type of physical therapy you undergo depends largely on your injury, age and overall health. For instance, a younger person who broke a leg in a car accident is in a different position than an older individual who is recovering from a broken neck.

Physical therapy can include many different techniques, such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, cold, heat and, of course, exercise.

At first, you may find that your physical therapy sessions are uncomfortable and maybe even painful. Although this isn't something you want to deal with, it's perfectly normal. Treatment can lead to pain, discomfort, and even a bit of swelling. This typically subsides over time, and the expectation is that you will begin to feel better.

If you have any reason to believe that you could benefit from physical therapy, ask your doctor for advice and guidance.

Covering the cost of care

Many people require physical therapy, along with other types of treatment, after a motor vehicle accident. Because medical care can be very costly, you should not wait to learn more about your legal options for covering those costs.

An experienced personal injury attorney can explain your options, help you maximize your claim, and negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company. If an appropriate settlement cannot be reached outside of court, your attorney can litigate your case in court.
