Doing Our Best to Make Certain You Receive Appropriate Medical Care
We believe that in many circumstances the most important part of our job is to do our best to assure that our clients will receive all appropriate medical care and attention to allow them to make a full and timely recovery. Many times people sustain “soft tissue” injuries as a result of a whiplash type accident. It is our experience that many times a person does not seek appropriate medical care after being involved in an accident resulting in neck or back injuries, oftentimes because X-rays do not reveal soft tissue injury or even injury to a spinal disk. Orthopedic surgeons, general practitioners, physical therapists, and chiropractors generally agree that receiving appropriate therapy soon after a traumatic event can significantly reduce the risk of scar tissue, thereby preventing an acute problem from becoming chronic.
In those situations where you do not have a personal physician, we can recommend specialists who can provide you with reasonable and necessary medical care and treatment. We have also established relationships with various diagnostic facilities that will provide prescribed diagnostic tests such as MRIs, even if you are uninsured and unable to pay.
The Law Offices of Slatkin & Lupo has long-standing relationships with numerous board-certified medical care providers who, when necessary, can render medical care and advice to our clients if requested.
