If you have been in a car wreck here in Jacksonville, Florida, please contact us right away. We are experts in treating these sorts of injuries as well as the severe, chronic pain that can follow from an auto crash.
Many patients looking for a “Car Accident Doctor” in Jacksonville, Florida don’t really know where to turn.
If you’ve recently been in a Motor Vehicle Crash and need medical attention, you must seek care with a physician and make a claim within 14 days or you may forfeit benefits. A Chiropractor visit alone will NOT protect your rights to get the full benefits of your policy.
Many patients get very frustrated because their own doctors will not accept PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance from automobile crashes. Please know that we take all Auto Insurances for injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
Car Accident Injuries deserve their own special page in order to explain just some of the elements that make these injuries unique. We have a great deal of experience in guiding you through this difficult process.
Dr. Willens is a Board Certified Interventional Pain Management Physician able to diagnose and treat all traumatic injuries.
We will see you TODAY for an evaluation and to start any needed treatment. We always start with easy, highly effective, and painless treatments such as Osteopathic Manual Medicine (similar to chiropractic), Massage and Physical Therapy.
We are uniquely able to serve our patients by evaluating and diagnosing immediately if you have been seriously injured and need more than just routine treatment. If left untreated, unrecognized or ignored, severe injuries are much more likely to be chronic in nature. As fully trained Board Certified Anesthesiologists and Pain Management physicians, we are uniquely qualified to recognize, diagnose and promptly treat these potentially devastating injuries.
Our staff is well trained in compliance and billing for Auto (Personal Injury Protection: PIP) Insurance. It is critically important to initiate Interventional Pain Management treatment as soon as possible for ANY PAINFUL CONDITION following trauma. Studies clearly show that failure to have interventions for pain within 3-6 months following the inciting injury, dramatically increases the probability of suffering with pain permanently. This is why it is vitally important to get treatment right away.
Patients injured in a Motor Vehicle Crash need to understand the implications for treatment under an Auto Personal Injury Policy (PIP.) Physically, injuries sustained in all traumatic events may be similar. However, there are important legal and financial considerations that are triggered when an injury occurs as a result of the use, maintenance or otherwise as a result of an automobile: a claim under PIP.
First of all, the patient needs to know that there are important deadlines to seek treatment under the new legislation. You must be seen by a physician within 14 days to protect your benefits.
Second, it is important to understand that only a limited amount of money is available for treatment. Under the new rules, Emergency Medical Conditions may provide up to $10,000. An individual not diagnosed with an Emergency Medical Condition has a limit of $2,500. Further, a chiropractor may not diagnose a patient with an Emergency.
Dr. Michael Willens serves as a consultant for many primary care physicians, chiropractors, neurologists, physical therapists, and surgeons to ensure that no condition goes undiagnosed or untreated.
