Benefits of Physical Therapy For Accident Injury
People injured in an accident (our clients) have a variety of treatment options available to help them get better. One excellent form of treatment is physical therapy. Physical therapists are health care professionals who offer treatment that improves mobility and relieves pain. Many people would like to avoid drugs or surgery. Fortunately, physical therapy after an accident often reduces the need for surgery or prescription drugs, and allows patients to participate in a recovery plan designed for their particular needs. Our lawyers have seen people injured in all kinds of MN accidents benefit from physical therapy. Another advantage to physical therapy, of course, is that it is less expensive than more invasive treatments.
The American Physical Therapy Association’s website outlines the benefits of physical therapy, in addition to providing a link for locating a physical therapist. You can find them at www.apta.org.
PAYMENT OF MEDICAL BILLS IF INJURED IN ACCIDENT
After an accident, people often worry about payment of their medical bills. However, if the accident was not your fault, you have several options. For one, your medical insurance will still pay your medical bills even if the accident was caused by someone else. Unfortunately, you will then have to pay your copays and deductibles. However, there are other options. For example, in an auto accident there is No-Fault coverage. In a premises case there is often medical payment coverage.
