Auto Injuries Q & A

What types of auto accident injuries require medical care?

Whether you've been in a minor fender bender or a major collision, Dr. Thompson is available to evaluate all of your injuries, big and small. Common injuries after a car accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck and back pain

When should I get treatment for my auto accident injuries?

It is recommended that you have an exam right away after any auto collision. This allows Dr. Thompson to assess the immediate effects of the accident and understand how the accident occurred while it's still fresh in your mind. Dr. Thompson is trained to evaluate your injuries and the severity of the accident to fully understand the extent of your pain.

Dr. Thompson works with your auto insurance companies to make sure you have coverage for your treatment.

How long does it take to recover from auto accident injuries?
