Receiving proper medical treatment is extremely important in any personal injury case. It is important that if you or a loved one are involved in a car accident, slip and fall or any other type of personal injury matter, that you do not delay in seeking medical treatment. For many, it can be difficult to justify the health risk associated with getting treatment right now due to the potential exposure to cover-19 in medical offices and hospitals. Some injuries may seem minor at first but it is always important to get checked out. For instance, head injuries, such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries can have subtle symptoms but be life threatening if not treated properly. The good news is that recent initiatives in the healthcare and technology fields are allowing many personal injury victims to obtain safe and efficient medical treatment during the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier last week, Florida’s Surgeon General issued an emergency order that allows certain out-of-state health care professionals to temporarily provide telehealth/telemedicine services to persons in Florida in order to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. For personal injury cases, the need for continued medical care remains vital, not only for the health of the injured plaintiff, but also for the success of the personal injury claim. Telemedicine (also referred to as “telehealth” or “e-health”) allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology.
Telemedicine allows patients in remote locations to access medical expertise quickly, efficiently and without travel. Personal injury cases not only involve emergency medical treatment but also treatment post-accident. A doctor may need to closely monitor your progress. An injured person may need to go through extensive physical therapy or receive pain relief in the form of steroid injections, even undergo surgery. The fear of contracting the coronavirus should not keep you from receiving that treatment. Not being treated for your injuries can help the insurance company’s claim that you are not as severely injured as you claim in your case.
