Strong Medical and Legal Case Experience

Medical Injury Center we posses decades of experience in med-legal care.

We have extensive knowledge in med-legal patient care and management. Med-legal care refers to treatment and management of personal injury patients, such as treatment of injuries resulting from motor vehicle collisions or slip-and-falls. Med-legal also refers to treatment of ‘on-the-job injuries’ which fall under worker’s compensation. Their experience in med-legal cases in the State of Florida dates back to decades.

Med-legal patients often have retained legal representation and, we manage and treat patients represented by almost every major law firm in Florida.

As is the case with all patients who are treated at our Medical Injury Center, we never hesitate to refer med-legal patients to the appropriate outside medical specialist for collaborative care when medical necessity exists, including:

  • Neurosurgeons
  • Orthopedic Surgeons
  • Neurologists
  • TMJ Specialists
  • Pain Management

Medical reports are an important factor in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries resulting from physical trauma, such as motor vehicle collisions. We utilize recent post-injury clinical studies, such as X-ray and/or CT Scans, when available, such as those taken at a hospital, imaging center, or medical facility. If clinical studies have not previously been performed, or if there is a medical necessity for advanced clinical studies, such as MRI, we always utilize imaging centers. All clinical studies ordered are read by radiologists who also have training in evaluating and diagnosing acute traumatic injury.

Management of med-legal care begins on day one. Personal injury patients consult with Dr. Huffman, who will ask detailed questions to determine the occupant kinematics and biomechanics involved in their crash. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) is always a concern when dealing with injuries from motor vehicle collisions, and we evaluate for signs of MTBI in order to get patients with MTBI the neurological care they need.medical legal experience

Many cases of late whiplash (chronic) neck or shoulder pain or severe recurring headaches have their origin in a crash that, often unknowingly to the sufferer, was initiated by a cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) injury, often referred to as a whiplash injury, which is a significant injury to their neck.

Following a whiplash injury, there will usually be a certain amount of neck soreness and stiffness as the muscles contract in their attempt to pull the head and spine back into alignment. Thinking that it will “just take time for it to go away” can be a very painful mistake for the future. Anyone sustaining a whiplash injury should have his or her spine checked.

Poorly documented medical reports can often lead to less-than-optimal settlements with the responsible auto insurer.  Dr. Huffman and his team have decades of experience clearly documenting auto injuries and presenting their diagnosis and rationale for treatment, as well as specialist consults in depositions and court. They also have experience in diagnosis conditions often missed by other healthcare providers, like soft tissue injuries, whiplash, spinal disc injuries, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and other conditions that help the responsible auto insurer fully understand the extent of your auto injuries.
