Loyd's Legal Insights: Should I go to the emergency room following a wreck?

I am St. Charles Parish injury attorney Loyd Bourgeois.  I am here to help you get the answer to this question and more today on this installment of Loyd’s Legal Insights.  Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with local chiropractor Dr. Mitchell Brien at his office on Highway 90 in Luling, Louisiana.  We wanted to get some insight from his perspective on some of the frequently encountered issues he sees in his personal injury patients.  I hope you will join us as we sit down with Dr. Mitchell Brien and learn more about the chiropractic process in personal injury claims.

Should I go to the emergency room following a wreck?

The Insight from Dr. Brien:

Every case is different.  If someone has severe abrasions or something, they're going to go to the ER.  For those who are not really feeling a lot of pain, in my opinion, it's always a good idea to go ahead and get it evaluated by someone who specializes in those types of injuries because some of those things don't show up for days or even a week sometimes. Some people's pain tolerance is much different so you want to make sure you get it evaluated and get those injuries at least looked at initially. There may not be any injury in there. You know some accidents don't have an injury, but it's a good idea to get a professional to look at that.

So there you have it – some simple truth from a proven medical leader right here in Luling. Remember if you are hurt in car crash here in St. Charles Parish or if you are looking for a local St. Charles Parish attorney to represent you in your injury claim –
