An Experienced Chiropractor
In many cases when a victim needs treatment for wounds tied to personal injury cases, they are referred to chiropractors. As a result, numerous chiropractors have considerable experience helping patients navigate the legal and medical waters surrounding such incidents. Since starting his practice in 1986, Dr. Langford has focused heavily on treating personal injury cases, particularly those resulting from automobile accidents.
In addition to treating the physical effects of these accidents, he can also offer a wealth of resources for patients. In particular, Dr. Langford's experience in treating patients from both Tijuana and San Diego has helped him develop a network of contacts, including both medical specialists and local lawyers. A number of local lawyers offer both in-office and at-home legal consultations, depending on the needs of the patient. Dr. Langford can refer patients to a lawyer best suited to their case.
Considering a Lawsuit
Many patients who come to see Dr. Langford may still be deciding whether or not to pursue legal action. While he cannot offer professional legal advice, he may be able to recommend certain courses of action based on the results of your examination and treatment. He can help evaluate your injuries to determine if you will require long-term treatments which can increase your need for financial compensation. If necessary, he can also serve as a medical expert for your injuries in court.
What to Expect At Your Appointment
To gain a sense of the scope of your injuries, Dr. Langford typically asks that you bring any pictures and reports about the accident to your first appointment. This meeting is usually a discussion and review of these items, followed by a physical examination.
At this point, the doctor will typically walk you through his recommended treatment plan: the types of therapies you may require, the duration of total treatment, and other information you may require. If necessary, he can also provide patients with a referral for further diagnostic studies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), pain management specialists, and other providers to speed up the healing process and avoid excessive pain during your recovery.
