Can I be treated by my own doctor if I was hurt in a car accident?

If you've been hurt in car accident you do have the right to treat with your own doctor or any doctor for that matter. However, one thing that you have to keep in mind is that the primary source of insurance or coverage for purposes of your medical treatment is going to be your PIP or no-fault insurance. As a result it's important that whatever doctor you decide to treat with following an accident, make sure that that doctor accepts your automobile insurance as a form of payment because that's the insurance that's going to be primary for your first medical treatment.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
