Car Crash Physical Therapy

Physical TherapyIf you were hurt in a car accident, physical therapy may be integral to your recovery process. Unfortunately, the physical therapy you need to heal can be both lengthy and expensive, leaving you to wonder just who is supposed to foot the bill for this essential treatment.

Here’s the good news: if you were Injured in an accident caused by another person or entity’s negligence, the at-fault party—and their insurance company— may be responsible for your crash-related medical care, including your physical therapy costs.

However, because physical therapy can be ongoing and costly, and is often used to treat soft-tissue injuries like whiplash that don’t always show up on x-rays or in other diagnostic tests, insurance providers may be hesitant to pay for it. Proving that the treatment is medically necessary is crucial, and requires you to work closely with your medical providers to carefully document your injuries and the need for physical therapy in a way that’s difficult for carriers to dispute.

To increase your chances of having your accident-related physical therapy expenses covered by the at-fault party’s insurer, you’ll need to:

  • Obtain a written referral from your regular doctor or a specialist treating your injuries that specifically connects your need for physical therapy to the injuries sustained in the crash.
  • Attend all of your scheduled physical therapy sessions and follow your therapist’s treatment plan.
  • Document all physical therapy expenses, including travel costs to and from each appointment.
  • Consult an experienced Georgia car accident attorney.
