Accident Injuries Treated at AICA Urgent Care

AICA specializes in treating car accident injuries and can walk you through the recovery process with care and expertise. While life-threatening emergencies should lead you to the emergency room, any other car accident ailments should bring you into an AICA location near you, where specialists will treat you with a vast knowledge and understanding of car accident injuries and their ideal treatment methods.

Car accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, varying in severity depending on the circumstances of the wreck. Our teams of car accident doctors have experience with a wide range of car accident injuries and can provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan. Here are a few examples of car accident injuries we treat at AICA Orthopedics:

  1. Whiplash: Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the head and neck experience a sudden back-and-forth motion. This can lead to neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and even shoulder or arm discomfort. Treatment for whiplash often involves rest, pain management, physical therapy, and gentle exercises to improve range of motion.
  2. Soft Tissue Injuries: Soft tissue injuries include bruises, sprains, strains, and contusions. These injuries affect muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Treatment may involve rest, pain management, ice and heat therapy, compression, elevation, and physical therapy to promote healing and restore healthy functioning.
  3. Fractures and Bone Injuries: Car accidents can cause fractures and other bone injuries, including broken limbs, ribs, or facial bones. Treatment may involve immobilization through casts, splints, or braces, followed by possible surgical intervention to realign and stabilize the bones. Rehabilitation and physical therapy are also crucial for restoring strength and mobility.
  4. Head Injuries: Concussions are the most common head injuries for car accident victims. Treatment depends on the severity and may include immediate medical attention, imaging tests (such as CT scans or MRIs), medication to reduce swelling or control symptoms, and rehabilitation therapies designed to address cognitive or physical impairments.
  5. Back and Spinal Cord Injuries: Car accidents can lead to back injuries, including herniated discs, spinal fractures, or spinal cord damage. Treatment may involve immobilization with braces or traction, pain management, physical therapy, and in severe cases, surgery to stabilize the spine and alleviate pressure on the spinal cord.

Urgent Care or Hospital for Car Accident Injuries?

When faced with non-life-threatening injuries, deciding between going to the hospital or visiting urgent care depends on the severity of the injury and the services available at each facility.

For Severe or Life-Threatening Injuries

If you or someone else experiences a severe injury with potentially life-threatening consequences, such as major trauma, severe burns, head injuries, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or loss of consciousness, it is crucial to visit the nearest emergency room. Hospitals are equipped with specialized staff and resources to handle critical situations and provide intensive care.

For Non-Life-Threatening Injuries

    For injuries that are not life-threatening, visiting urgent care can be more beneficial for several reasons:

  • Faster Access: Urgent care centers are designed to provide prompt medical attention, often with shorter wait times compared to emergency departments in hospitals, where patients with critical conditions take priority.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Visiting an urgent care facility can be more cost-effective than a hospital’s emergency department for non-life-threatening injuries. Hospital emergency services are generally more expensive due to their specialized capabilities and infrastructure.
  • Focus on Minor Injuries: Urgent care centers are well-equipped to handle minor injuries like sprains, strains, minor fractures, cuts, and infections. At an urgent care center, you can receive appropriate treatment for minor injuries without overwhelming hospital resources.

While urgent care centers have their advantages, it’s important to note that for severe or life-threatening injuries, immediate emergency medical attention at a hospital is crucial.

How Does AICA Charge for Car Accident Urgent Care?

At AICA, we do not charge patients upfront for car accident urgent care services, provided the patient is not at fault for the accident. In these cases, AICA will inform the patient that costs can be billed through the third-party liability claim. This means the patient won’t have to deal with any upfront costs at the time of their visits. However, if the patient is at fault for the car accident, AICA will take different steps to handle billing. We will first check if the patient has medical payment coverage on their own auto insurance policy or verify their health insurance coverage. In these situations, AICA will collect the payment at the time of the visit.

Regarding billing and payment procedures for car accident injuries, AICA will hold all bills until the end of the patient’s treatment. Once treatment is complete, AICA will provide the patient with their medical records and bills. Alternatively, if there’s a legal representative involved, like an attorney, and AICA has a Letter of Protection with HIPAA authorization, we will provide the records and bills to the attorney. The final step involves submitting the medical records and bills to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Typically, the at-fault party’s insurance should cover the costs of the patient’s medical treatment. This way, the patient can receive the necessary care without upfront costs and get the bills handled through the appropriate insurance channels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I go to the hospital or call AICA?

If you’ve been in a car accident and have severe or life-threatening injuries, we recommend visiting the nearest hospital. If your injuries are not life-threatening, AICA Orthopedics can help you avoid long wait times and costly hospital bills.

While the emergency room will effectively diagnose and stabilize patients, it will not offer continuous treatment necessary for your recovery. AICA has all of the doctors and equipment onsite to fully diagnose and treat your injuries, from day one through recovery. This includes medical doctors, orthopedics, chiropractors, physical therapists, neurologists, surgeons, and more.

With over 20 years treating car accident patients, we understand how to thoroughly document your injuries and can bill third-party insurance directly. This ensures you pay $0 out-of-pocket for medical care if you’re not at-fault for the accident.

Do I need to call a car accident attorney?

Yes, if you’re injured and not at-fault for the accident, we recommend contacting a car accident lawyer. Your primary focus should be on beginning and completing your treatment, which will establish documentation of your injuries. The lawyer’s role is to ensure you receive all necessary medical care without limitations. Insurance companies will try to save as much money as possible with your claim. Your attorney will serve as an intermediary between you and the insurance company, preventing any inadvertent statements or actions that could hurt your claim. They will ensure your medical expenses are taken care of, and that the time you’ve lost and invested in treatment is fairly compensated.

How long do I have to see a doctor after my car accident?

If you suspect you might have been injured in a car accident, we strongly advise you to see a doctor as soon as possible. Injuries resulting from car accidents, including soft tissue damage, often lead to delayed pain and other symptoms. Neglecting these injuries could result in long-term health complications. Regardless of whether days or weeks have passed since the accident, we recommend being checked out by a doctor.

In the event that you plan to file an injury claim, it’s particularly important to consult a doctor who can promptly document your injuries and initiate treatment. Delaying medical attention can lead to restrictions on the care you’re able to receive.

Does AICA charge for car accident medical bills?

If you’re not at fault, the responsibility for your medical bills lies with the other driver’s insurance company. At AICA, we can directly bill the at-fault insurance company for your treatment, ensuring you never have to pay out of pocket for the care you need.

When you visit AICA, you can receive a comprehensive diagnosis of your injuries and begin treatment with a guaranteed $0-out-of-pocket expense if you are not at fault. Our team is experienced in navigating the intricacies of medical billing after car accidents and we are here to assist you every step of the way.

What doctor should you see after a car accident?

The type of doctor you should see after a car accident depends on the nature and severity of your injuries. Here are some healthcare professionals you may consider:

  1. Emergency Room: If you have severe or life-threatening injuries, visiting the emergency room of a hospital is crucial. They are equipped to handle acute injuries and provide immediate medical care.
  2. Car Accident Doctors: For non-life-threatening injuries, we recommend contacting a medical provider who specializes in treating car accident patients, like AICA Orthopedics. Our comprehensive team includes doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurologists, all conveniently located in one place.

  4. Chiropractor: Chiropractors specialize in treating musculoskeletal injuries, such as neck and back pain, which are common after car accidents. They can provide spinal adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and other treatments to alleviate pain and promote healing.
  5. Orthopedic Specialist: If you have fractures, joint injuries, or other orthopedic issues resulting from the accident, an orthopedic specialist can diagnose and provide specialized treatment for these conditions.
  6. Physical Therapist: Physical therapists can help with rehabilitation after a car accident, providing exercises and therapies to restore mobility, strength, and function.
