Accidents happen, and even a minor one can cause an injury. If you've been in a car accident, it's important to seek medical treatment from a doctor that specializes in auto accident injury assessment and care.

Recovery is more than physical healing

A car accident is more than a physical event — it can be frightening and even traumatic. Getting the care you need shouldn't be. We've dedicated our practice to providing the best orthopedic care for our patients in an environment that is warm, friendly, and supportive.

Expert, individualized care is available

Our physicians are uniquely suited to diagnose and treat injuries from a car accident. Whether it's a broken bone, a sprain, or an inflamed tendon, we will accurately diagnose your injury and develop a specialized recovery plan for you.

  • Examinations, X-rays, MRIs
  • Medication such as anti-inflammatory
  • Outpatient surgery on site
  • Physical therapy
  • Post-operative house calls*
  • Post-operative rehabilitation in home*

*Total joint surgery patients only.

The Alexander Outpatient Advantage helps our total joint surgery patients recover faster, and in the comfort of their own home.

Delaying treatment after an auto accident may cost you

Your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance covers your care even if the accident was your fault, so there's no reason to delay treatment. In fact, PIP insurance has a 14-day statute of limitations, so delaying your treatment could end up costing you more in the end.

Symptoms vary greatly from person to person. You may develop symptoms right away, or you may not experience any symptoms at all.

Common symptoms after a car accident:

  • Headaches
  • Pain in shoulder, neck, back or other area of the body
  • Restricted motion
  • Numbness, tingling, burning sensations in your arms, hands or fingers
  • Grinding or popping when moving joints

Even if you "feel fine," you should see a Personal Injury doctor as soon as possible. If you wait too long you may end up paying for your recovery out of pocket, and your injury may get worse.
