Can I Choose Which Doctor Treats Me?

When you are injured in an accident, you have many decisions to make.  Within reason, you are usually able to decide which doctor will treat you for your injuries.  In most situations, you will present to an emergency physician, who will tell you to follow up with your primary care doctor.

If you do not require emergency care, you will instead go to see your primary care doctor as soon as possible after your accident.  When you are in your initial appointment, you will want to ask your doctor about treatment options and their recommendations.  From this point, they will usually refer you to additional providers.

However, in some situations, you may want a certain type of treatment, such as chiropractic treatment, that your doctor does not refer you to.  In these situations, you should speak to your attorney about finding another medical professional to treat you.
