What To Do If You Are Injured In A Car Accident
If you sustain an injury in a car accident, it’s important to seek medical attention within the first 48 hours following the crash.
In 2017, there were more than 120,000 traffic crashes in Pennsylvania, resulting in upwards of 80,000 injuries!
Even minor automobile accidents can lead to serious injuries – some of which are not immediately noticeable. If you’re involved in a crash, and your condition is not life-threatening, skip the long waits and high prices of the ER and head right to Liberty Urgent Care. Our friendly and talented medical providers are here for you 7 days a week, with no appointment necessary.
We’ll get you right in for a comprehensive physical exam to check for potential injuries. And with onsite X-rays, we’re able to quickly diagnose and treat common accident-related injuries, such as:
- Broken Bones (Fractures)
- Cuts and Lacerations
- Strains and Sprains
- Seat Belt Injuries
A post-accident exam is important for a number of reasons. Due to the shock and trauma of a crash, many people don’t feel the full extent of their injuries until days later. A medical exam can help detect these injuries sooner so you can get the proper treatment you need to heal. If you delay treatment, your condition may worsen. Don’t let a minor injury become a chronic problem.
Seeking immediate treatment is also important for insurance and legal claims. If you wait to see a doctor, it may be harder to prove that your ailments are a direct result of the accident. Why risk it and wait when you can see a Liberty provider the same day? Arm yourself with a professional medical report that details the extent or severity of your injuries and the treatment you require.
