1. What Are The Extent Of My Injuries
Knowing how bad your injuries are, or how bad they can get is an important step in the recovery process. Although it won’t be 100% accurate, your doctor can give you a close-as-possible estimate of the extent of your injuries. Your doctor can tell you exactly what got broken, damaged, lacerated, etc and can give you an estimate as to how serious the damages actually are.
2. How Long Will It Take For Me To Recover?
This question doesn’t really have a solid answer. Your doctor can give you an accurate ballpark estimate on how long it will take you to recover from the car accident injuries that you suffered, but recovery will depend on the individual and is different between individuals. Your doctor is not a fortune teller, so it is really hard for your doctor to give you an end date to all your surgery and treatment. Sometimes, in the middle of recovering, you may be recommended more treatment because the injury got more severe. In that case, you may be given an extended time for recovery. In the end, the doctor can tell you that it will take a few weeks, or a few months.
3. Should I Take Time Off To Recover From My Injuries?
This depends on how severely you were injured and the nature of your job. Although you COULD come to your own conclusion on whether you should go back to your job while injured, the doctor will know best. Most severe injuries require you to rest both physically and mentally. Whether you want to do both is up to you and your judgement in the end, but getting a doctor’s note and having proof that your injuries are to that extent is always good.
4. Should I Take Prescription OR OTC Medication?
This is another important question. Depending on how severely you were injured, you may need medication to ease the pain and to accelerate the healing process. It is always a terrible idea to think that you can just self-diagnose and decide that you will take pain killers just because it hurts. It may not only hurt your case, but it can also hurt you.
5. Would I Have To Go To A Specialist
Your doctor will tell you if you finally need the help of a specialist. Injuries like spinal and cervical will require surgery and a specialist to properly and accurately diagnose so that you don’t suffer later from a misdiagnosis. Make sure to ask your doctor if they haven’t told you already and to confirm that it is necessary to go to a specialist.
