Are you excited about the holiday season? So are we at Kentucky Pain Associates. It’s a wonderful time of year, but unfortunately for some people, it doesn’t turn out as planned. The holidays are full of parties, get-togethers, long lines at the malls, stress and increased traffic on Louisville-area roads and interstates. All of these factors combine to heighten the risk for motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) when you’re driving during the holidays.
A significant number of the patients we treat have been involved in some type of car wreck or other collision. We often are the first-place people go for medical treatment, assuming they didn’t go to the ER. Many local attorneys refer their auto accident clients to us, because we can usually see you more quickly, diagnose what’s causing the pain and begin treating you for it.
We also work hand in hand with chiropractors, physical therapists and other physicians to coordinate the care and treatment of the patient. This is one of the reasons injury attorneys like to refer people to us. We can manage the medical treatment and provide medical records and other documentation. This is extremely important for your accident claim and any legal actions you may have to take to get your medical bills paid.
Worried about Medical Bills?
Interestingly, Kentucky has a no-fault system for motor vehicle accidents. In most cases, you and your passengers are automatically covered for approximately $10,000. This source of no-fault coverage (also called Personal Injury Protection or PIP), can be used for medical treatment, lost wages and a few other types of expenses related to your accident.
Kentucky Pain Associates can begin treating you, well before the issue of who is at fault for the collision is decided by your attorney and the insurance adjuster. The PIP benefits are there to ensure you can get medical care, as quickly as possible.
Worried about Sitting in the ER for Hours?
Hospitals and Emergency rooms are there for all types of situations, car wreck injuries, flu, COVID, abdominal pains, cuts and the list goes on. Add to that the fact that you may be sitting there for hours while the doctors and nurses treat other patients. No one wants to go through that, especially when you could be put at risk of getting sick.
Our waiting room is comfortable. Because we treat pain-related symptoms, our environment tends to move much more efficiently, without cramming you into a room with other types of illnesses. KPA can get you in, treat you and get you on your way back home.
If you’ve been injured in a car wreck, especially while you’re driving during the holidays, the last thing you want is to be stuck in a crowded ER. We can help.
