After a Herndon car accident and injury, every accident victim has the same priority—fully recovering. Being a great patient and complying with your doctor is the best way to accomplish two different goals:  recovering as quickly and fully from your car crash as possible and recovering the compensation you deserve from the at-fault party.

 

How can you strive to be the ideal patient after a Virginia car accident?

 

  • Report all of your symptoms. Be open and honest with your doctor. Don’t play down any symptoms or neglect to share signs of serious injury (especially head injuries or symptoms of mental health issues like depression). Also, don’t exaggerate your symptoms. Finally, be sure to report if a treatment is or is not working for you. If you are candid with your doctor, you will get optimal results.
  • Be engaged and ask questions. When it comes to medicine, treatment, and your health, no question is a dumb question. Be engaged during your appointments, take notes, and don’t be afraid to ask for more information or a more in-depth explanation.
  • Follow doctor’s orders. Above all, comply with your doctor’s orders. This includes regularly taking any prescriptions you are given, regularly attending any therapy sessions scheduled, and listening to your physician when she suggests rest, dietary changes, or other lifestyle changes.
  • Work hard to get better. It’s easy to be passive or to wallow in your injury. Be an active participant in your health and your recovery and don’t give up.

In a most recent case that I have encountered, a young woman sued a plastic surgeon for a plastic surgery malpractice. She underwent surgery after she had a minor car accident and her nose was badly deformed because of it. She had her minor bruises attended, and decided to under a nose lift at the same time. Although the doctor performed well the procedure, the doctor forgot to go through with the patient the routine checks on allergies. After the operation, the doctor prescribed some medicines, and that is where the patient exhibited allergic reactions that almost caused her life. It was an interesting case of he said/she said, but the patient or the defendant was able to establish that omission of the accused.

Accidents are never planned rather it occurs suddenly in a flick of seconds. So we need to prepare us for the situation after accident. After the accident we need to consult a good doctor and look out for the symptoms. We should be engaged and follow doctor's order. This will help us to recover from our injury.

Accidents could occur due to many reasons. It might be due to any one's fault either the driver or the passerby. We could only prevent by becoming more careful. But if we are trapped in an accident situation then we need to follow some particular steps so that it proves good for our situation. We need to report all our situation to the doctor and ask him about the situation. We should follow doctor's order and tale medicines at proper interval of time. The information is quite helpful.
