What Is Considered To Be a Personal Injury?

Accidents are inevitable, and whether you were hurt in a car crash or a slip-and-fall, you need a proper medical evaluation, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment.

At Coastal Pain Medicine in Pompano Beach, Florida, board-certified pain specialist Dr. Patrick Brennan and our staff specialize in caring for patients immediately following an injury and throughout the rehabilitation process.

Our personal injury experience extends beyond the medical, though. We have in-depth knowledge on factors such as insurance claims, legal representation, PIP coverage, and more, and we work closely with insurance attorneys so you can focus on getting well.

What conditions fall under a personal injury?

The medical hurdles you can expect to face depend entirely on the nature and severity of the injury. Common problems that occur as the result of car accidents include:

Sprains, strains, and broken bones are also common in slip-and-fall accidents.

Treating personal injury conditions

At Coastal Pain Medicine, we first perform an evaluation, taking a detailed medical history and gleaning information about your injury, how it happened, and what symptoms you’re showing. We order imaging tests such as X-rays, CT, or MRI scans to view the damage. 

Once we have all the data, we draw up a treatment plan to address your needs. As a doctor of osteopathic medicine, Dr. Brennan takes a more holistic approach to treatment, pairing alternative therapies with traditional Western medical practices.

If you’re dealing with whiplash or another neck injury or if you’ve developed lower back pain stemming from nerve damage and/or inflammation, and if over-the-counter medications aren’t managing your pain, Dr. Brennan might recommend:

While an orthopedist is the right specialist to mend a broken bone, Dr. Brennan can help relieve the associated pain.
