Seeking medical attention after an accident is important. Right now many fear seeing a doctor during this pandemic. So what is the best way to get medical care during this time? That decision is up to you. However, it is in your best interest to get care as soon as possible. A gap or delay in treatment likely will create issues. From a legal point of view the longer you prolong treatment the more difficult it is to approximately relate the injury to your accident. Is your doctor’s office closed or do you feel uncomfortable seeing your doctor in person due to the risk of catching coronavirus? Telemedicine may be an option for you.
What is Telemedicine?
The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to telemedicine as “healing from a distance.” The ability to get treatment without ever stopping into the doctor’s office. While it cannot replace the traditional practice of getting an x-ray or stitching up a cut. It does allow for a doctor to give you a diagnosis, provide you prescriptions, and even provide you a prescription for home remedies and exercises.
