3 Questions to Ask a Doctor After an Atlanta Trucking AccidentIt can be difficult to remember everything that you want to ask a doctor after your Atlanta trucking accident. Your mind may, understandably, be focused on immediate pain relief and your doctor may be rushed and not think to provide a fuller picture of your recovery. However, by asking the questions below your doctor will provide you with the information that you, and your Atlanta truck accident lawyer, want to know about your injuries and your future.
What You Need to Know After Atlanta Trucking Accidents
Some of the specific questions that you can ask your doctor are:
- What kind of treatment am I going to need? You want to be prepared for what your treatment will be like. Will you need surgery or rehabilitation therapy, for example? How long is the treatment expected to last? Will it be painful or limit your ability to function?
- How long do you think it will take before I feel better and can go back to work? This will likely depend both on your accident injuries and the type of work that you do. Your doctor can advise you about when it would be safe to return to your current job - or another job.
- What is my prognosis? Will there be any permanent injuries from this accident?
The answers to these questions will help you prepare not just for your short term recovery, but for the rest of your life.
