Your first option is to go to a local ER or urgent care center. Although, that may actually be a big mistake. Why could going to the ER be such a big mistake you may ask? Well, to start, the ER can typically cost you $5,000 just to walk through the door. Included in this large hospital bill are a waiting room full of sick patients, exposure to excessive and unnecessary CT scans, and no diagnosis for your whiplash and soft tissue injuries. This long and expensive trip often leaves you back at square one.
Until recently, car crash and whiplash patients had no option but to go to a local ER and urgent care. Part of the reason is that primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients, even their own established patients.
