Understanding Car Accidents in Oxnard CA

Here's the are sitting in your car at the stoplight, idly thinking about your day ahead, when: BANG! Your car is hit in the back by another vehicle, crushing the trunk and accelerating you forward into the intersection. You sit there, stunned. Your airbags did not deploy. Bystanders come and knock on the window asking if you're OK. You exit the car, shaken when the sound of sirens gets your attention and the police arrive. They start gathering your information and the other driver when the ambulance arrives. The police are concerned and the paramedics speak with you, place you on a spine board, put you in the ambulance, and take you, with the sirens wailing, to the local hospital's emergency department.

The nurses and doctors examine you, obtain x-rays of your neck and back, prescribe medications, and tell you to follow-up with your personal physician. You think "I got away with this; I'm really not hurt."

The next morning you wake stiff, increasingly sore and confused. What do you do? Call me. I will bring you into my office, examine you professionally, with kindness, and start your therapy. I have heard the above scenario literally thousands of times. I know what to do for you.

If you need imaging studies (x-ray, CT, MRI), we will order them. If you need orthopedic doctors, neurologists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, we will refer you to doctors that we trust. If you want to follow up with your primary physician, we agree with this. The insurance company is badgering you? I have a digital Rolodex with professional, competent, and smart attorneys that we will suggest you talk with.

Your injuries do not allow you to return to work? We will certify you for a temporary disability. In other words, we will do whatever it takes to get you back to where you were before your accident.
