If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you have every right to see your own personal doctor.
Often, if you go to the ER or an urgent care after a wreck, the doctors there will refer you to someone else for follow-up. Typically, that’s for an appointment with an orthopedist or a neurologist, but it can be for almost any kind of doctor.
You should see any doctors that THOSE DOCTORS refer you to see. In the meantime, though, it’s perfectly fine to see your own family doctor.
If you already have a doctor, they know your physical condition best, and their opinion is invaluable in determining your plan of care.
Even if your family doctor decides a specialist should run your entire treatment program, you’re likely to have a lot more peace of mind knowing that your own doctor was involved in that decision.
Insurance companies train their adjusters to make you question your medical choices and suggest that you’re getting care you don’t need, or that you didn’t get care that was “necessary” to make them pay more money for your case.
