5 dirty secrets you most know before you call anyone after an accident

1. All those ads you see and hear about attorney referral services are just adding a middle man which you don’t need and they will refer you to their own clinics and attorneys that pay them for referrals. You hear they selected these attorneys when in reality its just the attorneys that pay them. Why bother when you can see an attorney without a referral service.

2. Hospitals are the only facilities that are not under a fee schedule so they can charge whatever they want and they do. Many involved in an accident will receive CAT scans what medicare would only pay about $350 but when your in an accident they will charge you $3500 per scan thats 10x more and they many times will do 3 scans at $10,500. To put salt on all your wounds most times the scans are not needed and not the gold standard like an MRI. Many are told to get an MRI after the hospital used up all the insurance.

3. You have 14 days after an accident to see any health professional but many insurance company’s won’t tell you that till after its too late or they will tell you have to go to the hospital but that’s not true . All florida drivers must pay for $10,000 in PIP benefits but the insurance company only has to pay $2500 unless you get an EMC which stands for Emergency Medical Condition but most doctors dont even know about it or how to do it, then you stuck with a bill that gets denied.

4. Insurance companies won’t help you find a doctor after an accident hoping you’ll wait more than 14 days so they don’t have to pay. Many are lost when the hospital tells them to go see their primary doctor and they find out their primary won’t even see them .

5. Research shows auto injuries that were only treated with drugs or no treatment at all will lead to scar tissue, fibrosis,herniations,stenosis and degenerative spinal arthritis causing chronic pain which leads many to get addicted to narcotics.

A Personal Letter from Dr. Barr

Dear Accident Victim,

This is Dr. Daniel Barr from West Coast Wellness in North Port FL and if you are on this website you’ve probably been searching the Internet trying to figure out what to do now that you’ve been in an auto accident. You are probably wondering about your best choices.

auto-injury-whiplashAt West Coast Wellness we believe that we have the best options for you. For many people, this is probably the first time you’ve been in an accident and you are wondering what do I do? Do I pick an attorney out of the Yellow Pages? Do I go to my primary doctor?

If you do, you’ll likely learn that many primary doctors do not treat auto accidents. And, if you go to the emergency room, that could take 6 to 8 hours til you finally get seen by one of the hospital doctors who will probably give you some pain medication, then tell you to go home and follow-up with your regular doctor or their orthopedic surgeons.
