Auto Injury- First Steps

Were you the victim of a motor vehicle collision or accident? Except for the most minor auto collisions we typically recommend that anyone in an auto collision seek medical attention quickly. Even accidents that appear minor can produce increased adrenaline flow and aches and pains from strained and sprained muscles and joints. Onto Orthopedics can help propel your recovery process with our care and over 30 combined years of experience working with auto insurance companies, auto injury lawyers and auto injury specialty physicians.  

With some of the latest technologies, techniques, and telemedicine services, our experts can help you through the entire process and get you back on your feet. Shawn A. Hayden, MD, PhD is a Harvard-trained orthopedic surgeon with many years of experience diagnosing and treating trauma victims. Dr. Christian Andriano recently joined our team as a licensed physical therapist. While our mission is to help you medically, we can also help you find a qualified personal injury attorney for monetary assistance. 

How Can an Auto Injury Attorney Help?

Finding a doctor to treat you may be challenging when you are injured in a motor vehicle collision. Many orthopedists do not treat patients suffering from auto injuries because of difficulties collecting from health insurance companies when an auto insurance company is involved. Your insurance may be able to withhold payment until your auto accident case settles – often up to 2 years.  This is when a good auto injury lawyer can help. Onto Orthopedics is familiar with the personal injury process and has worked with local auto injury attorneys that practice personal injury law.  Many of these attorneys specialize in car accident cases and can help get you compensation more quickly for your injury. These attorneys can also often help you find other specialists to treat your injury quickly. Call us at (214) 731-3008 for more information!  

Choosing a Law Firm

After you have decided to seek legal counsel, you may ask yourself “What type of firm?” Often the choice is between a large firm or small legal office. Large law firms in the DFW area commonly process greater than 100 auto accident clients per month. This means that they may have many extenders and paralegals handling your case.  While this may be efficient, there may be less time with the actual attorneys to receive TLC. 

Smaller boutique auto injury law firms also exist which can offer more personalized care. Our practice specialists may be able to help you find such a boutique firm.  These smaller auto accident attorneys that process fewer than 25 cases per month can often offer you a greater amount of personal attention through the process, especially right after your accident.  We have found that a combination of efficient handling of your case and great communication often result in a quicker settlement. 

Experience Speaks

The experience of the firm can also help propel your claim. While many law firms claim to be specialized in auto injury cases, only a small subset make personal injury claims their "bread and butter". These specialty personal injury firms often are more familiar with the intricacies of auto injury claims such as deadlines, legal motions, pleadings, etc. Further, these seasoned attorneys are often more comfortable arguing an auto injury case physically in court or over teleconference. The end result is you may be able to receive medical treatment and compensation more quickly and efficiently.
